2019 Project Image for West Bath Road over the Cuyahoga River Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Project updated: Oct 18, 2019

PHASE: Completed

West Bath Road over the Cuyahoga River Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Bridge is now open.

The West Bath Road Bridge was closed for 150 days starting June 3, 2019. This project is on schedule to reopen November 1, 2019. Downtime was built into the project schedule in order for engineers to analyze bridge beams, complete the final design, and order the steel needed after determining how much of the current bridge was still useable. This project includes rehabilitation of the existing three-span, continuous steel beam structure (Structure No. AKR-048-0615) carrying West Bath Road (CR 48) over the Cuyahoga River. Rehabilitation items include: new reinforced concrete deck, new bridge railing, structural steel repairs, field painting of structural steel, substructure repairs, new reinforced concrete approach slabs, and minimal approach roadway work (pavement, drainage, guardrail, etc.) necessary to tie-in to the bridge. JD Williamson was the contractor on this $1.2 million dollar design-build project.

2019-2022 Project Image for Intersection Improvement: Canton Road at US 224 and State Route 91

Project updated: Oct 23, 2019

PHASE: Construction

Intersection Improvement: Canton Road at US 224 and State Route 91

This $12.2 million dollar safety improvement project is being administerd by the Ohio Department of Transportation. ODOT controls three of four legs of the intersection with Summit County responsible for the southern leg. The project will widen Canton Road/SR 91 to create a northbound dual left turn lane, eastbound right turn lane, proper eastbount left & southbound left storage length at the US-224 intersection. On Canton Road (CR-66) south of US-224, they will construct raised concrete median from US-224 to approximately 150 feet south of the Arcadia and Meadow intersection. Canton Road will be widened for a two way left turn lane south of Arcadia to Springfield Lake Drive and on State Route 91 from Old Home north to Linwood. There will be dedicated U-Turns on Canton Road at Springfield Lake Drive and on State Route 91 at Linwood. The project includes City of Akron waterline replacement within the project limits. Springfield Township and the Village of Lakemore are participating financially in the construction of decorative lighting units and landscaping along the corridor.

2019 Project Image for Boston Mills Road Geotechnical Study

Project updated: Oct 18, 2019

PHASE: Design

Boston Mills Road Geotechnical Study

The Department of the Interior has an annual grant program called the Federal Lands Access Program, offering up to approximately $300,000 per project for roads that access national parks. For the last several grant cycles SCE has applied for funding to improve Boston Mills Road, starting at the Riverview Road intersection, to complement the work CVNP is doing to create a centralized visitor’s center for the national park. In the third round of funding SCE applied for funding to complete a geotechnical study of the entire Boston Mills corridor which has at least 7 active landslides. This study will include 25 boring holes with an average depth of each hole 86 feet, numerous and various types of soil sampling and soil testing including laboratory testing for soil strength. A consulting firm will also perform non-destructive seismic testing – sending shock waves in to the hillside to determine the speed the waves travel through the ground giving an approximation of the depth and strength of the underlying geological strata of the hill side. Final product will be an analysis of the depth of the various landslides investigated, a recommendation of how to repair the single most critical slide location plus a cost estimate to repair the seven studied locations using a proration of the worst site.

2020 Project Image for Intersection Improvement: Cleveland-Massillon Road at Ridgewood Road

Project updated: Mar 5, 2020

PHASE: Design

Intersection Improvement: Cleveland-Massillon Road at Ridgewood Road

The Summit County Engineer’s office is preparing construction plans to improve the intersection of Cleveland Massillon Road at the western leg of Ridgewood Road on the border between Copley Township and the City of Fairlawn. 

The proposed improvement will:

  • Provide a new south bound right turn lane on Cleveland Massillon Road from the Rothrock Circle intersection to Ridgewood Road, 
  • Provide a new east bound left turn lane on Ridgewood Road at the intersection and extending 400 feet to the west.
  • Require the acquisition (donation) of land from the Copley School District to accommodate the new turn lanes,
  • Reconstruct the existing traffic signal installation, including new signal supports, 
  • Modify the existing storm water collection basin near the intersection.

The project will NOT acquire any property from either the east side of Cleveland Massillon Road (A Schulman area) or from the south side of Ridgewood Road (Ridgewood Center area). 

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.

2020 Project Image for 2020 Pavement Maintenance Program

Project updated: Feb 11, 2020

PHASE: Construction

2020 Pavement Maintenance Program

The Pavement Maintenance Program includes hot mix resurfacing, chip and seal resurfacing, motor paving, asphalt rejuvenation, crack sealing, and pavement marking on various County roads. The list of roads is below.  

405 resurfacing is also known as Motor Paving. The contractor uses a stationary plant on-site to prepare the asphalt mixture, places it on the roadway, and compacts the mixture with a roller. 422 (chip seal) is then placed on top of the 405.

422 resurfacing is also known as a chip seal. The contractor places an asphalt emulsion on the roadway, spreads gravel on top of the emulsion, compacts the stone into the emulsion with a roller, and then sweeps the excess gravel from the road the same day. Sweeps are repeated about a week later to ensure loose gravel is completely removed from the roadway.

448 resurfacing is also known as Hot Mix Asphalt. The asphalt is prepared in an asphalt plant, transported to the site in heated trucks, placed on the roadway in the desired thickness, and then compacted with a roller.  448 is the most durable (and most expensive) asphalt pavement and resists rutting and can handle heavier traffic loads more than 405 and 422 resurfacing.  It is used in locations that have heavy traffic and a high percentage of truck traffic.

Asphalt Rejuvenation: An asphalt rejuvenating agent is applied to hot mix asphalt pavement that was placed one or two years ago.  The agent restores flexibility and water resilience that the asphalt surface lost due to weathering and the passage of time. Forty-five minutes after the rejuvenating agent is applied, sand is placed over the agent to absorb excess agent and provide enhanced vehicle traction.  One week later, the excess sand will be swept from the road surface.

Crack sealing is a method in which hot sealant is applied to existing cracks in the roadway to prevent water intrusion.
