Tallmadge -- Eastwood Avenue from Washburn Road to Newton Street will be closed to traffic for a culvert replacement project this week.
According to Bob O'Bryan, assistant director of public service for the city of Tallmadge, the construction work on the 1/4 mile stretch of road is scheduled for Oct. 8 to 10.
The road will be closed to traffic throughout the construction, and road closed and detour signs will be posted.
The total cost of the project is about $12,000. Money from the city's stormwater fund will be used to pay for the work.
O'Bryan said the project is normal maintenance on the city's stormwater system.
"It's an old steel pipe that's rusted out, and we're going to replace it to better help the drainage in that area," he said.
