The Front Street project in downtown Cuyahoga Falls is ready to start, and has been met with great fanfare.
The mayor of Cuyahoga Falls, Don Walters, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the project, which passed unanimously on Monday night. The soon-to-be-former pedestrian mall will be torn up and replaced with a brand new street, park benches, and streetlights, with the underground utilities to be replaced first.
Walters says the project will begin very soon, with plans already being drawn up. His main goal is to protect the businesses already there, and the timeline is to have everything completed by 2018.
