Main Street Corridor Phase 2 Updates

Main Street, Market Street to Perkins St.
Beginning August 25
Beginning Wednesday, August 25, N. Main Street will be closed to southbound traffic only between MLK Jr. Blvd. and E. Market St. Traffic will be detoured using MLK Jr. Blvd., N. High St. and E. Market St. Northbound traffic will remain open.

Karvo Companies, Inc. and the City of Akron continue work on a full improvement project which is located on Main St. between W. Mill St. and
Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
***S. Main St. has been re-opened to traffic in both directions between E. Market St. and Mill St. Work continues to be completed along both sides of the street so occasional lane closures and shifting of traffic are to be expected.
