The City Engineer's Office is monitoring the traffic signals on Summit Street to alleviate traffic back-ups during peak times. 

The Summit Street Improvement Project is scheduled to be completed on Aug. 15, weather permitting. 

Morris Road/Janik Drive will be closed Summit Street beginning Tuesday, July 24. 

Summit Street, from West Campus Center Dr. to Fraternity Circle, will be closed to eastbound traffic for approximately two weeks.

The installation of brick crosswalks on Summit Street will continue during the month of July. 

Beginning June 25, there will be one-way, eastbound traffic on Summit Street from Lincoln St. to Morris Rd. 

A green roof, a geothermal heating and cooling system that is 300 percent more efficient than standard systems, and a 15,000-gallon gray tank that recycles rainwater for irrigation and flushing bathroom fixtures. These are just a few of the sustainability features that helped Kent State University’s Center for Architecture and Environmental Design receive LEED Platinum recognition.


West Risman Drive will be closed beginning the week of June 18.

There will be periodic closures on Summit Street at the West Campus roundabout on Tuesday, June 12. 

There will be lane restrictions on Janik Drive from Monday, June 4, through Sunday, June 10, 2018
