Eastbound Marsh Road in Atherton will be closed on Wednesday, Aug. 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. so workers can repair damage to the fence dividing the road from the drainage channel.
The fence was damaged Tuesday when a vehicle traveling east on Marsh Road jumped the fence and crashed into the channel, according to Atherton officials.
In March and April, similar accidents also took out the Marsh Road fence. Atherton Public Works Superintendent Steven Tyler said the town plans to put reflectors and reflective paint along the edge of the road to try to improve safety there. The town is currently seeking a permit to redo the drainage channel, and once those changes are made it will also improve safety in the stretch, he said.
