Marsh Road will re-open between 5:00 and 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 13
Just in the nick of time before school starts — M-A on Aug. 17 and Laurel/Encinal on Sept. 1 — Marsh Road from Middlefield to Fair Oaks will reopen on Saturday, Aug. 13, between 5:00 and 6:00 pm.
Some remedial work will be done over the next week to complete the sewer line restoration, re-striping the roadway, removal of signage/barricades, removing secondary by-pass materials, and minor pavement repairs. This work, which should be completed by August 26, will be done under a simple lane closure with directed traffic in both directions.
This notice was posted on the Town of Atherton website: “The successful completion of this project would not have been possible without the coordination of the County, the cities of Menlo Park and Redwood City, the Sheriff’s Office, the CHP, Menlo Fire, West Bay Sanitary District, the Town and most importantly, the public.
“The project came with significant improvements as well as some significant impact on the surrounding neighborhoods. The collaboration, cooperation and patience of the neighbors helped make this project a success.”
The Atherton Channel (aka “ditch” to long-time residents) walls and floor were repaired, and a metal railing to prevent vehicles from driving into the Channel from Marsh Road was installed.
The photo shows the Channel on August 10th with improvements near completion.
