Summit Street Improvement Project: Work to Begin on Phase Two
Work is scheduled to begin in early March on the second phase of the Summit Street: Building a Better Way Improvement Project. The second phase will make improvements to Summit Street between Lincoln Street and Fraternity Circle, including a second roundabout, a left turn lane from Summit Street to Terrace Drive and the relocation of Campus Center Drive to align with the Student Green.
One-way, one-lane eastbound traffic is scheduled to begin the week of March 6 and will continue through November. Weather or other factors could delay the start of the one-way traffic.
The work will be done in sections, which should minimize the disruption of traffic on Summit Street. The first stretch of one-way, one-lane traffic will begin on Summit between Willow and Morris, and will continue through early May.
Access to buildings and parking lots in the construction area will be maintained and the current PARTA bus routes will not be impacted for the remainder of spring semester.
Electronic message boards will be operational to advise motorists of lane closures and detours. You can view videos on the detour route and the project improvements at www.kent.edu/summitstreet/resources
