Delayed street resurfacing continues in Hannibal

A drawn-out road project in Hannibal may soon be coming to an end and neighbors are glad to see it. 

Some residents are having to get some extra walking in while crews finish re-paving Marsh Ave., but come Friday things could be back to normal.

"We’ve had a bit of a bumpy ride recently while they’ve been working on our street," said Hannibal resident Jared Wagoner.

The street has been on hold since water damage meant repairs had to be done before resurfacing but Hannibal Street Department crews are getting back to work on the street.

"This street here was one we had done part of, and then it needed some storm-water and water repairs and so Hannibal Board of Public Works had to replace a water main so we’ve been waiting for that to come to a completion this past week," said Hannibal Street Department Lead Aaron Davis.

Wagoner and other Marsh Avenue residents, like Jennifer Holt, are having to park off Center Street while the resurfacing is being done.

"I had to go back to my house at lunch and I had to park on the street to walk up to the house just so they could keep the road closed," said Holt.

Officials said they’ll be wrapping up in the next couple of days depending on the weather, and residents say it’s going to be worth the hassle.

"I think we’re all ready to have it done and be nice, and it’s worth the headache for a couple of days to have it done and I don’t mind the inconvenience for a little bit for it," said Holt.

"It’s gonna be a real relief to have the new asphalt here and smooth out the road here, it’s going to be nice not to have to go through a gravel pit on the way home, I’m very happy to have to walk a bit extra to have the road nice and smooth," said Wagoner.

Davis said weather permitting, they’re expecting to wrap up with Marsh Ave. on Friday, after that more resurfacing is scheduled for next month.
