Roads to close for Yellow House move

HOWLAND — Police and fire officials are asking people to avoid the area of Niles Cortland Road and state Route 82 Sunday morning while the Yellow House is moving.

The historic house, believed be the township’s oldest still-standing structure, will be moved by truck from its place on Niles Cortland Road near the Route 82 eastbound on-ramp to a new location across the street from Howland Middle School in order to make way for the Ohio Department of Transportation’s diverging diamond interchange project.

Law enforcement will close Niles Cortland Road and Route 82 along the route starting around 6:15 a.m. Sunday and no traffic will be allowed to enter or exit that area. Safety forces have said they do not want people lining the streets to watch the event because it will cause an obstacle for crews.
