Maple Road Repair Update (July 2, 2021)

The following detour and construction update for North Maple Road was announced by the City on July 2, 2021. Emergency repair work will begin Tuesday July 6th, and is scheduled to be completed by Aug 10th.

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.
