Kent to Renovate "Crash Corridor" with Help from Federal Funds Featured

Written by

Kent’s so-called “crash corridor” will be getting an overhaul thanks to help from a $5 million dollar federal grant. 

The problem area is the one-mile stretch on East Main Street where Kent State University and other businesses reside. Community members tell News 5 it’s a busy area, with a sharp incline, and narrow parking.

Now the more than $25 million dollar project is moving forward, with work expected to begin in 2025.
