Marion police: ‘Stay off the roads, be patient’ as crews work to restore power
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Crews in Marion worked through the night and the day to clear roadways being blocked by down trees.
Marion police posted to Facebook, asking people to not travel unless it’s absolutely necessary.
“Trees will be cleared first, followed by the smaller brush,” a statement from the city said. “Any trees in the roadway entangled with power lines will not be cleared at this time.”
The city said garbage and recycling collection will continue as normal. Trash bags are required for additional bags or cans of waste at the curb.
The Yard Waste Drop Off Facility located at 195 35th Street is open until 7 p.m. Tuesday. Metal is being accepted at the Recycling Drop-Off Facility which will be open during normal business hours.
Citywide curbside brush collection will be free of charge. Residents are asked to place downed tree branches and debris between the sidewalk and curb for collection. It does not have to be cut to a specific size.
