Akron's Middleton Road Waterline Replacement Project
Update October 1, 2019
Middleton and Darrow Road Water Project Update:
The City of Akron’s Waterline Project along Middleton Road and Darrow Road will continue into late Fall, 2019. Water main and service connection work along Middleton Road is approximately 3/4 complete. Final water main installation along Middleton Road is estimated for final completion near the end of October. Work remaining along Middleton Road includes water main testing, tie-in at SR 91, Stow Road and other side streets, individual house service connections, cleanup and grass restoration.
A second construction crew working along Darrow Road replacing water main bolts at pipe joints. The second crew will begin the bolt replacement work along the east side of SR 91 between Middleton Road and the northern corp. line. The work along Darrow Road is scheduled for completion in December.
Resurfacing of Middleton Road:
The City of Hudson will resurface Middleton Road from Stow Road west to within 200’ of Darrow Road after all water work along Middleton Road is complete. The asphalt resurfacing limits will be from Stow Road west to just short of Darrow Road (SR 91). The section of Middleton Road just east of Darrow Road will be lowered in the summer of 2020.
The Middleton Road Waterline Replacement project by the City of Akron has been scheduled to begin May 28, 2019 near the Stow Road/Middleton Road intersection. This project is being funded by the Hudson Projects Surcharge.
The project includes two parts:
- Part 1 includes the installation of a new 16” water main and fire hydrants on Middleton Road from Stow Road west to Darrow Road (SR 91). After bolt replacements are complete, the contractor expects to begin replacing the 16" water main in Middleton Road at Darrow Road in the beginning of July. Work will begin at the west end and work eastward to Stow Road. Work is anticipated to be completed in late November.
- Part 2 includes bolt replacement along Darrow Road (SR 91) from Middleton Road north to the Hudson/Twinsburg corporation line. The contractor plans to begin in the spring performing bolt replacements on Darrow Road.
Resurfacing of Middleton Road will take place as soon as the water line work is completed and accepted. If the resurfacing of Middleton Road needs pushed to 2020, the City of Hudson's Public Works Department will maintain Middleton Road in 2019.
