Tallmadge -- Sections of North Avenue will experience a face lift of sorts -- in the near future and over the next few years -- starting with improving the intersection near the Summit County Fairgrounds this spring.
Late this summer or early fall, North Avenue from near Howe Road north to near Northmoreland Avenue in Munroe Falls will be resurfaced, and in 2016 another stretch of North Avenue will be replaced, along with curbs, storm drains, sidewalks and landscaping.
Other improvements include replacing traffic signals at the intersection of North Avenue and Overdale Drive.
The total price tag for all of the work is about $5.7 million, according to Pat Sauner, Tallmadge's community development director.
The city is able to move forward on the projects because of funding from the Ohio Department of Transportation, according to city officials.
