North Freeborn repairs
Marion public works employees are busy this week removing pavement from the 200 block of N. Freeborn St.
City administrator Roger Holter said the pavement was damaged by rains.
“We repaired the intersection there,” Holter said. “The water had gotten underneath back in the spring.”
Between 40 and 50 percent of the substrate beneath the pavement was eroded by water flowing east and west along the street but south below Freeborn St., Holter said.
When pavement in the area is completely removed, a patch will be poured.
“They will pour concrete to replace it,” Holter said.
The new concrete will need to cure 72 hours before the street can reopen, Holter said.
