      Project Location: Middlebury Road, Munroe Falls-Kent Rd.

      Project Budget: $550,000

           Construction Start Date June 2012

           Project Finish                  Spring 2013


The City of Kent Service Department has recorded 17 total waterline breaks along the existing Middlebury Road watermain since the year 2000. The City’s Central Maintenance Department has been responding to the frequent breaks.  Approximately 3,800 feet of water main replacement is proposed.  This project will tie into the new Middlebury/Cherry water main and continue northeast along Middlebury Road, terminating with a connection into the Longmere Drive watermain.  The new 8 inch ductile iron pipe will be wrapped in plastic to protect it from corrosive soils.  Additionally, approximately 500 feet of new 8 inch water main will replace the existing 2 inch water main on Munroe Falls-Kent Road between Roosevelt and Midddlebury Road.

The existing Middlebury Road waterline is an 8-inch cast iron pipe constructed in the year 1960.



Project Status:

  • Final punch list items will be completed in spring 2013
