Old Main Sewer Separation CSO Rack 21

Intersection of Beech St and N Howard St

Starts: December 2016
Ends: December 2018

Project Description

This project includes separation of combined sewers in the CSO Rack 21 service area which, in general, is bounded by E Market St to the south, the Little Cuyahoga River to the north, CSX railroad tracks to the east, and the Innerbelt and N Howard St to the west.

Anticipated Maintenance of Traffic

The Old Main Separation project during 2016 and 2017 will impact traffic around the intersection of Beech St and N Howard St. Coordinated closures of N Howard St, Perkins St, N Summit St, Furnace St and Ridge St will allow for local access.

Dollar Value of Project


Benefits to Akron Upon Completion of Work

A major benefit of this project is a great improvement in the water quality of our local streams, rivers and lakes with the elimination of combined sewer overflows from existing CSO Rack 21. Residents will also see full width pavement restoration on streets where new sewers are being installed.
