A City of Henderson Engineering Department memo sent to WIZS News states the following:

The City of Henderson has contracted with Carolina Sunrock to perform much needed street resurfacing throughout the City and Marsha Avenue from Fairway Drive to Cameron Drive is on the list. Due to the severity of its condition, much of the asphalt needs to be stripped and the sub-grade reworked and then the asphalt replaced. The extent of this work will take 2 days to complete and during this time the road will be closed to all through traffic. The City and its Contractor will work with the residents that live on the street to ensure daily access to their residence on Marsha Avenue, as well as first responder/emergency situations.

This work will begin Monday morning, at 8:00am on December 4th to Tuesday evening around 5:00 pm December 5, 2017. The City appreciates your patience and understanding during this temporary closure but the ultimate goal is to provide a more long term solution to repair and upgrade this section of pavement on a very highly traveled portion of the city’s streets.
