Rhodes Road Access Path

Project Location:     Rhodes Road

Project Budget:       $170,000

Project Schedule:   To be determined



This project involves the installation of a 10 foot wide multi-use path, comprised of both asphalt and concrete, increasing safety in the area for the heavy pedestrian volume while also improving accessibility with the connection of the existing Franklin Township path to the adjacent Kent State University property.

The path will be located on the south side of Rhodes Road from the intersection of Loop Road east to the City of Kent corporation line, approximately 1725 lineal feet.

The Rhodes Road Access Path project will involve tree removal, grade work and minor utility work in addition to the path installation.  As of now, the construction of the Rhodes Road path is scheduled to be performed by the City of Kent’s Central Maintenance Department starting next spring 2011.   

Both projects will be completed jointly with KSU and Franklin Township through their financial participation and by allowing access for connection of the existing paths.
