Road work set on state Route 5

Starting May 1, state Route 5 westbound between state Route 82 and Interstate 80 / Ohio Turnpike in Braceville / Newton Falls will be closed for one week for a culvert replacement.

The detour will be state Route 82 to state Route 534. The work is the beginning of a $3 million project to resurface state Route 5 between the Portage County line and the western Warren bypass limit.

The project also includes a culvert replacement and is expected to be finished by late September.
