See which streets, bridges will be under construction in 2024

CANTON – More orange construction barrels are coming to Canton.

The Canton City Engineering Department plans to spend nearly $14 million on road paving and street and bridge construction projects this year, its highest allocation since at least 2008, city records show.

Nearly $6 million will be spent to pave roughly 30 miles of the city’s 440 miles of road as part of the city’s annual paving list that will touch 141 different roads. Another 13 miles of road will be paved as part of larger road construction projects.

City Traffic Engineer Nick Loukas said the department needs to pave 29 miles of road each year to maintain an average 15-year paving cycle. But the city fell far behind due to a lack of money before city voters passed the Issue 13 income tax increase in 2018.

“Over the last two years, we finally got to where we actually feel good about where we are headed,” Loukas said.

This year’s paving list includes more than 70 alleys, which generally are considered roads under 16 feet wide with few, if any, homes fronting them.

Made with Flourish

Made with Flourish

Mayor William V. Sherer II has pledged to pave every alley in the city within four years as part of his neighborhood transformation initiative, titled Connecting Canton – Together, that was unveiled in May.

It’s been decades since alleys were paved

City Service Director John Highman said it likely has been decades since the alleys were last paved.

“The philosophy has been that fewer people drive on them, so you do them last,” Highman said. “But when you got behind as those who came before us did, at some point, you can’t let them deteriorate anymore and you have to have a philosophy change.”

Much of this year’s alley work is concentrated east of Cleveland Avenue and north of 12th Street. City leaders have identified the area, which includes the Vassar Park neighborhood, as one of its two priority focus areas for the neighborhood improvement initiative.

The initiative’s other priority area is in southeast Canton where the 11th Street SE realignment and roundabout and the Allen Avenue SE sanitary sewer project are underway.

Beyond the paving and its major construction project, the engineering department also is laying the groundwork for future projects such as conducting traffic safety studies at 13th Street and Interstate 77 and at the intersections of U.S. Route 62, Harmont Avenue NE and Lesh Avenue NE. The department also is starting the design process for future improvements along Cleveland Avenue NW between 12th and 30th streets, at Fulton Drive and 25th Street NW, and along 30th Street NE.

Some of the department’s non-road-related projects slated for this year include the expansion of the city’s impound lot and overseeing the construction of multiple buildings such as an auction building at 2436 30th St. NE, a building for the sanitation department on Regent Avenue NW and a building that will house the engineering department’s traffic, signal, sign and paint operations.

A list of all the engineering department’s major projects can be found at cantonohio.gov.
