SR 91 & Norton Road Improvement Project

Update 10/5/16: On the evening of October 6, 2016, Traffic will be shifted from the east side to the west side of the bridge on SR 91 just north of Fishcreek to prepare for the east side bridge demolition. The west side has been widened to accommodate traffic and two-way traffic will be maintained. Delays should be expected during the transition period.

A temporary signal will be placed at the Shoppes of Stow and Bruegger's Bagel Drives during bridge replacement.  Delays should be expected during heavier volume  periods.    

Eastbound Fishcreek Road traffic is closed at S.R. 91 and will remain closed throughout the bridge replacement construction. Completion time frame, weather permitting, is December, 2016. Fishcreek traffic westbound will be shifted to the recently completed south side of Fishcreek. Detours are posted.

The bike and hike trail will remain closed until the bridge is replaced with the new arch culvert. Construction is expected to continue until early 2017.  Please view the Summit County Metro Parks website for updates and alternative routes.
