East Maple Street Improvement Project

East Maple Street Improvement Project – City of North Canton

The City of North Canton is proposing to install an 8' wide multi-use concrete path along the north side of East Maple Street from Marquardt Avenue to approximately 600 feet west of Market Avenue where the new multi-use path will connect to the Hoover Park Connector Trail. Drive aprons and utility service boxes will be adjusted, and minor drainage improvements will be made along the north side of East Maple Street along the proposed path. In addition, approximately 400 linear feet of standard 5-foot wide sidewalk will be constructed along the south side of East Maple Street to connect the Walsh University west entrance gate to the center entrance gate.  Moreover, as part of the project, the Stark County Engineer will rehabilitate the East Maple Street Bridge over the West Branch of Nimishillen Creek. 

The proposed project will include the acquisition of minor new permanent and/or temporary rights-of-way as necessary to accommodate the new path and sidewalk and associated grading. A 0.21-acre road easement will be acquired from the Hoover Recreation Complex to facilitate construction of the path and provide ADA compliant access from the newly constructed multi-use path to the Hoover Recreation Complex. The easement area is a narrow strip of land along the East Maple Street frontage.  The project will not impact the ball fields or other existing improvements at the Hoover Recreation Complex.  Full access will be maintained to the Complex during project construction.

Bridge maintenance will require closure of East Maple Street between Marquardt Avenue and Walsh Avenue for a period not to exceed 60 consecutive calendar days when through traffic will be detoured utilizing Marquardt Avenue, Applegrove Street NW, and Market Avenue  Construction, lane restriction and detour information will be posted prior to the start of construction.  Access shall be maintained to all adjacent properties and intersecting side streets for the duration of the project. Substantial traffic disruptions are not expected with the project.

The project is in preliminary development and work will begin in Spring 2020 and be completed in Fall 2020.  The current estimated total construction cost is approximately $1,875,000.

The proposed project will not result in any substantial impacts to environmental resources. The environmental review, consultation and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding, dated June 6, 2018, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.

The City of North Canton is requesting that any comments you may have regarding the proposed project and/or environmental impacts be submitted by January 30, 2020 to:
