Akron, Ohio– Alan Brubaker, P.E., P.S., Summit County Engineer, would like to alert residents and motorists that the East North Street Bridge over the Little Cuyahoga in the City of Akron, which is currently under construction, is closed effective immediately. Increased erosion due the recent storms has made the bridge unsafe for travel. Detour routes will be posted.
Construction on the bridge began on March 9, 2015. Initially the bridge was to be built in two phases, allowing two lanes of traffic to be open continuously through the construction. The Summit County Engineer’s office is reviewing construction plans to determine the best way to proceed with the bridge replacement project.
The detour route will go from Dan Street to Evans Avenue to Home Avenue.
