Marvin Cemetery Wall Reconstruction Rescheduled to Oct. 3; Travel on Route 156 To Be Affected

The Marvin Cemetery wall reconstruction that was scheduled to take place earlier this month had to be postponed due to a lack of available flaggers.  The reconstruction will now begin on Monday, Oct. 3, and take approximately two to three weeks to complete.  The reconstruction will reduce traffic down to one lane along Route 156 as it passes the cemetery.  Please bear with the road restrictions while the improvements are being made and use caution while traveling through this area.
