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 eastbound 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.
