City of Green Announces Road Construction Projects for 2013
Green, OH –More than 30 lane miles will be repaved in Green this construction season. The following infrastructure projects are slated for the 2013 construction season:
Greensburg Road West. Greensburg Road from Arlington Road to just past Shriver Road will be resurfaced beginning the week of April 29. The project will include one closure for three weeks of the 90 day project. The closure will be located at Steese Road to reconstruct the intersection. Currently the closure is set for mid-May.
Greensburg Road East. Greensburg Road east of Massillon Road to the east corporate limits will be resurfaced in summer.
East Turkeyfoot Lake Road/State Road 619. This project is an ODOT managed project and includes a bridge replacement (just east of the railroad near Spade Road) as well as the repaving of the entire section of SR 619 in Green city limits. There are two anticipated road closures between Spade Road and the east city limits to replace the bridge and culvert work. These closures are anticipated in summer for approximately 30 days.
Arlington Road. Arlington Road from NimisilaRoad to the southern corporation line at Mount Pleasant will be repaved beginning in early June. In addition, two small projects near I-77 along Arlington will be completed in late summer. The first is the reconstruction of Arlington Ridge East (just pass Taco Bell and McDonald's). The other is a small segment of roadway under the I-77 underpass, which will be reconstructed and include the addition of sidewalks.
Steese Road. A small section of Steese Road from Shriver east to the roundabout will be reconstructed with a central turn lane and sidewalks added. This project is expected to begin in July.
Shriver Road. The entire section of Shriver Road from Steese Road to Greensburg Road will be repaved. Sidewalks will be added to the east side of the road from Steese to Portage Lakes Career Center. Curbs and storm sewers will be added to this section as well.
Heckman Road. The entire length of Heckman Road in Green will be repaved in late-summer.
Global Gateway. This entirely new road will connect the existing Global Gateway to Greensburg Road scheduled to begin in August of 2013 and completed in 2014.
Mayfair Road. This project has been completed as of April 19 with the exception of some minor work. Mayfair Road from Mount Pleasant to the railroad tracks (near Aultman Drive) has been repaved.
“With the amount of road work we have this summer, there will be multiple projects occurring simultaneously,” said Paul Pickett, city engineer. “It is conceivable that those travelling through our city will encounter multiple road projects and delays.”
With the exception of the three currently scheduled closures at Steese Road and Greensburg in May and SR 619 (two closure zones), all traffic will be maintained with some delays.

“The nature of construction coupled with the uncertainty of weather makes it somewhat difficult to predict schedules and timelines,” said Pickett. “As construction dates change, we will work diligently to keep residents and businesses informed. We ask that residents connect with us through our website or sign-up for alerts for the most up-to-date information.”
