Do you drive to Weathervane Playhouse by way way of Merriman Road? Pay heed to this notice of a traffic detour!
H.M. Miller Construction and the city of Akron will close Merriman Road just southeast of the railroad tracks for the reconstruction of a sanitary sewer out into Merriman Road.
The closure will be for approximately three weeks beginning January 21 and finishing on or around February 12.
The portion of Merriman Road that will be closed is the "hill" portion leading down into (and out of) the Merriman Valley neighborhood. Access to the rest of Merriman Road heading northwest toward Weathervane Playhouse is NOT affected by this closure.
Motorists can access locally from either end of detour closure. There will be no access across Merriman Road at the construction site.
The posted detour route is North Portage Path and Memorial Parkway. Local access only is permitted. The city of Akron and the Akron Police Department urge motorists to please remember to drive safely, and to obey all detour signs.
