  • What's going on here? Intersection at creek to be rebuilt

    • email print
  • WHAT IS IT? Preparation for a new road and bridge across the Middle Branch of Nimishillen Creek to change the road configuration where Mill Street SE meets Allenford Drive in Canton Township and Allen Avenue in Canton.
    HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN GOING ON? Work is just starting on the project estimated at $2 million, said Stark County Engineer Keith Bennett. The project will be put up for bid in April or May, and is expected to be complete in spring or early summer 2013. It will make it easier for vehicles coming off Cleveland Avenue to make the turn from Mill onto Allen, he said.
    WHAT DOES IT MEAN?  Most of the work, including the construction of the new bridge, will be done with the current road and bridge open. The bulk of the project is on property that has been annexed to Canton. The new road will meet farther west on Mill and north on Allen, while Allenford will veer off.  Mill Street currently forms a “T” intersection with Allen and Allenford.  The new bridge will be constructed west of the existing bridge and will align Mill Street to allow easier movement of traffic from Mill to Allen, Bennett said.
