Beginning on Monday the City of Kent has began a project to install a new waterline on Middlebury Road from Akron Boulevard to Longmere Drive, and on Munroe Falls-Kent Road from Roosevelt Avenue to Middlebury Road. All existing water services will be reconnected to the new waterline.
Middlebury Road will be closed between Munroe Falls-Kent Road and Akron Boulevard to through traffic beginning Wednesday. The closing will be from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm weekdays. Middlebury Road will be re-opened weekday evenings and weekends.
Local traffic will be maintained as well as emergency vehicle traffic. It is suggested that local traffic take Munroe Falls-Kent Road to Akron Boulevard.
Delays should be expected during the construction, and alternate routes should be used when possible. The project is scheduled for completion by September 15,
