Marsh Road

Marsh Road Project Update

Thank you to the community for your ongoing support and patience as the Marsh Road construction progresses. A few items to help folks understand what is happening with respect to signage and traffic control:

It is imperative residents do not remove or relocate signage. Signage has been placed to notice the community but also to permit safe travel in the street rights of way. If you see that a sign has been removed please contact us immediately.

The Town is making regular assessments of project needs (flaggers included) weekly. We monitor the traffic flow with both field crews, public input and traffic counts. As adjustments need to be made, we make them. Basic construction flaggers are required at all times. Detour flaggers are not.

Updates about the project including traffic counts are posted to the Town’s project webpage at

We appreciate everyone’s patience as the project moves along. Construction traffic will get more congested over the next few weeks as they off-haul debris, deliver rebar, and begin concrete pours. Construction flaggers will be present for the entire project while detour flaggers will be on-site during peak traffic flow hours and at identified hot spots.

Again we appreciate your help, patience and understanding as we complete this project as safely and expediently as possible.
