Tallmadge Road Could Get a Face-Lift If City Council Gives the OK

Most of the money needed to resurface the road will come from an Ohio grant

Tallmadge Road could be getting a face-lift soon.

That is, if Cuyahoga Falls City Council gives the go-ahead.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported that, on Monday, council will consider resurfacing the road — from Newberry Street to 300 feet south of Clyde Avenue — and most of the $500,000 needed for that will come from an Ohio grant. (About $100,000 should come from the city.)

"Every year when the street resurfacing list came out, I would get calls from residents asking why Tallmadge wasn't on the list," Ward 2 Councilwoman Mary Ellen Pyke said in the Beacon. "With decreases in the general fund, we had to find another way to pay for a half million dollar project."

What do you think? Does Tallmadge Road need some work?

What other roads in the Falls need some attention? Tell us in the comments.

Please please pave that road. I expected it to be paved years ago vs. some of the other not so bad roads get done.

I've lived on Falls avenue for 7 years and I think my street has been paved twice in that time!

If they don't do the whole road, they should at least take care of the section around Preston school and Taylor.

This section of road definitely needs come attention.
