The project will also include adding a continuous right turn lane from Cleveland Massillon Road to Ghent Road. Work began April 13th with an Cleveland Massillon Road road closure date of May 13th.
ROAD IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. Paving to begin July 1, 2020. The project has been delayed due to soft soils, utility issues, and a manufacturer delay of the new traffic signal poles.
