Speak Up Akron! Big Changes Ahead On Route 8 Featured

Written by

The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is planning big changes on Route 8 in Akron, near the central interchange where it intersects with I-76 and I-77.

They include additional lanes, and overpasses that are designed to reduce congestion, and improve safety. But, they have several designs in mind, and that's where you come in.

Listen now, as ODOT Public Information Officer, Justin Chesnic, talks to Jeanne Destro about how they're asking for public input on their construction plans, before they start work on what will be a very big project that probably won't get underway until 2027.
