Road Linking Ottawa And Marseilles Reopens After Flood Repairs

Posted by wlpo on October 10, 2013

A road taking you from Ottawa to Marseilles reopened after flood damage had it closed since mid-April.

Canal Road was reopened Thursday after the April flood caused a 100 foot hole in the pavement.  Crews also had to make a new channel for the creek under the I & M Canal near the road.  County Engineer Larry Kinzer says the canal trail also reopened.

The county received $1.5 million in federal money to fix the road.
