Construction to replace the walls and floor of the Atherton Channel (known to some locals as the Marsh Rd. ditch!) from Middlefield Road to Fair Oaks Avenue will begin in mid-May.

Marsh road ditch post rainThe retaining wall supporting Marsh Road, which also forms one of the walls of Atherton Channel, is in need of repair. When the Channel is completed, a metal railing to prevent vehicles from driving into the Channel from Marsh Road will be installed.

Due to safety requirements during construction, Marsh Road will be partially or completely closed. A schedule of road closures and detours will be available soon. Several public meetings to inform the public about traffic detours and impacts will be held.

A Community Information Meeting to learn more about how the project construction will impact traffic and the surrounding community will be held Wednesday May 4, 2016, at 7:00 pm, Jennings Pavilion, 150 Watkins Ave., Atherton

More information about the project is available online.
