Greenway closed due to flooding

The Joseph McDowell Historical Catawba Greenway is closed due to flooding caused by heavy rainfall received in and around Marion over the past few days.

The forecast is calling for more heavy rainfall later this afternoon and evening. In the interest of safety and to avoid further damage to the Greenway, please heed all closures and do not cross any barricades or closed signs on the Greenway or any trails, according to a news release.

The City will strive to complete the cleanup work as soon as possible. The City thanks the public for its patience while the Greenway is temporarily closed.

For further information, please contact the Public Works Department at 652-4224.
