Maple Road Repair Update: Jackson Avenue Lane Closures begin July 19, 2021

The City announced on July 16, 2021 that the water main repair work on Maple Road will move into the intersection of Maple Road and Jackson Avenue. Beginning Monday July 19th, eastbound and westbound traffic on Jackson Avenue at Maple Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction. See more details below.


Note that North Maple Road from Jackson Avenue to the Veterans Memorial Park and Maple Village Plaza Driveways is still closed due to road repair work. I posted about this closure earlier (and the detour map is attached below):

This is an emergency reconstruction of a section of road that was damaged due to a City water main break on June 22, 2021. Shortly after the break, a boil water alert was issued for the surrounding area. That boil water alert was lifted on June 24, 2021.
