City of Stow Enters Next Phase of Graham Road Improvement Project

STOW, OHIO – (June 5, 2019) – In a continuing effort to improve our roads, the City of Stow is engaging in the next phase of the Graham Road Improvement Project. Work began on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, and will be completed in early July, weather permitting.

The 1.44 mile area currently in the improvement process is from the railroad tracks in Silver Lake, east to Elm Road in Stow. Contractors hired by the City began milling the asphalt on Graham Road. Traffic will continue to be restricted at times to one lane in each direction. Motorists should expect delays travelling through this area through early July.

Upon the construction’s completion, Graham Road will be fully resurfaced, including the removal of pot holes, patches and bumps. Additionally, all handicap ramps will be updated.

This project was made possible through the hard work of those repairing the road and a $700,000 Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) that the City of Stow and Silver Lake Village received from Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study (AMATS). The overall project costs $1,041,260. The City of Stow and Sliver Lake Village share combined is $247,000.

The city will provide additional updates on the status of the construction project as necessary.
