Mill St. & Summit St.
November 29-December 10

Sanitary Sewer Reconstruction
On Monday, November 29, H.M. Miller Construction Co. and the City of Akron plan to begin sewer lining work at the center of the E. Mill St. and S. Summit St. intersection. Eastbound traffic will be detoured using S. Broadway, E. Market St. and S. Union St. Westbound traffic will continue to be maintained, but merged into a single lane around the work zone.
Drivers are urged to use caution while proceeding through this area.
This work is expected to be complete by Friday, December 10.

Main Street Project Phase 2
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.
N. Main St. has been closed to all traffic at the north side of the E. Market St. intersection. Northbound traffic will be detoured using E. Market St., N. Broadway and MLK Jr. Blvd. This closure is expected to remain in place until Friday, December 17.
The west side of the street remains closed and the southbound traffic continues to be detoured using MLK Jr. Blvd., N. High St. and E. Market St. This side of the street is expected to re-open by December 31.
Access will be maintained to all businesses from the north end of the project at MLK Jr. Blvd.
Drivers are urged to use caution while proceeding through these areas.
This project is expected to be fully complete by April, 2022.
