City OKs Tallmadge Road Resurfacing

Cuyahoga Falls City Council voted unanimously to resurface the road — between Newberry Street and Clyde Avenue — at a cost of $500,000

Tallmadge Road will be getting some attention after school ends in June.

At its Monday night meeting, Cuyahoga Falls City Council voted unanimously to resurface the road — between Newberry Street and Clyde Avenue — at a cost of $500,000, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.

A state grant will cover 80 percent of the total, so the city will be responsible for about $100,000.

The road will not close but will go down to one-lane traffic during that time, the newspaper reported.

Cuyahoga Falls Patch readers weighed in on whether they wanted to see the road improvements. Here's what they said on the website: 

  • ES: "Please please pave that road. I expected it to be paved years ago vs. some of the other not so bad roads get done."
  • JBoss: "I've lived on Falls avenue for 7 years and I think my street has been paved twice in that time!"
  • Terry: "If they don't do the whole road, they should at least take care of the section around Preston school and Taylor."
  • Missy Cox: "YES! Please do Tallmadge Road! I've been saying for years that it has needed done!"
  • Will Wilson: "This section of road definitely needs come attention."
