Construction projects to continue through winter
By Chris Barnes
Released/Published: Oct 5, 2009

With the winter months quickly approaching, the residential and commercial construction season typically slows down. For the Canton City Engineering Deparment, however, our work is just beginning! The 25th Street NE Storm Sewer Project – a joint effort between the City of Canton, Plain Township, and Stark County – is now underway and will continue throughout the winter months.

The primary motivation for this $3 million improvement in the vicinity of 23rd Street NE, Roosevelt Avenue NE, 25th Street NE, and 26th Street NE is to solve flooding problems that have plagued this part of our community for many years. In addition to new storm sewers, some streets will see upgrades to water lines, sanitary sewers, and the roadway itself. The storm sewers will drain westerly and ultimately into the Middle Branch of the Nimishillen Creek near Marvin Place NE.

Speaking of flooding problems, this time of year when the leaves have fallen off of trees can wreak a lot of havoc on our streets and yards. If they’re not dealt with properly, leaves frequently collect on catch basin grates or clog drain pipes, causing water to back up and create localized flooding. Never rake leaves or other yard debris onto the street or into the nearby creek. Please do your part to help by raking leaves and disposing of them properly.
