Media Advisory / Traffic Alert

Copley Township, OH – Summit County Engineer Alan Brubaker, PE, PS would like to alert residents and motorists of the immediate closure of the Cleveland-Massillon Road Bridge over Wolf Creek, located between Minor Road and Stimson Road in Copley Township.

They have recommended the immediate placement of barrels to keep traffic off the external beams as well as removing the bridge asphalt as soon as possible to evaluate the interior beams. The County Engineer’s office will be closing the bridge immediately to remove the asphalt and evaluate the carrying capacity of the internal beams. The County Engineer will provide a closure status update when the engineering evaluation is complete.

The detour route will be posted. The detour route will involve State Route 261 and Summit Road.
