May 15, 2020: Utility Relocation Continues as Construction Start Approaches

Posted on May 15, 2020 at 9:13 AM by Valerie Wolford

This week and into next the following utility work continues:
  • Dominion Energy has been onsite for the last couple of months relocating the existing gas line and installing new service lines throughout the corridor.  Gas lines and service lines needed to be lowered in areas where the road is being lowered to provide better site distances for drivers. 
  • First Energy is relocating existing power poles. Currently this is focused on the west side of Massillon Rd.  
  • AT&T is also working to finalize their relocations within the corridor. This work will continue as needed with minimal impact to traffic. 
  • Traffic will be maintained with flaggers. Please anticipate some delays. 
The Karvo Companies is the the general contractor for the Massillon Rd. Improvement Project.  Work is anticipated to begin, weather permitting, the week of May 26 or June 1. More details to come next week.
