Route 91 Construction Update at Solon Border

I’ve had several people ask me about the status of the Route 91 construction on the north end of town headed toward Solon. Here’s the latest.

91 Traffic Advisory

Construction on Route 91 (Darrow Road) between Glenwood Drive and Lisa Lane has begun.

Work anticipated for the remainder of 2018 includes:

  • Private utilities will continue to be relocated on Darrow Road from Glenwood Drive into Solon.
  • The contractor will work on the west side of Route 91 relocating fire hydrants, performing waterline lowering and storm sewer improvements between Lisa Lane and Glenwood Drive. This work will utilize flaggers during construction hours.
  • Once water work is complete, temporary pavement is to be installed on the west side of Route 91 and traffic will be shifted onto this pavement around the end of September, allowing two-way traffic to continue during construction.
  • The contractor then will install storm sewers from Ethan’s Drive to Glenwood and construct the road widening on the east side of the pavement. Officials anticipate shifting traffic back to the east side by the end of the year.

Construction is anticipated to be complete in fall 2019.

This update was also posted to the City’s website in PDF format.


  1. I left a voice message but wanted to follow-up with an email. I have an issue with the work being done on 91. The workers started at 6:30 am on Saturday. What can be done to push that time to a reasonable one? In addition, they have placed a plate on the road and every car driving southbound is creating a loud booming sound over the plate. The noise is so loud in the back of my home that I hear an echo from the front window. The crew failed to put asphalt around it to cushion the noise. The process is just beginning, therefore, I (we) need you to assist. This is no way to live.

    • Good morning Tracy – you’re right, this is far too early. I forwarded your note along to the Mayor, the City Engineer and the rest of Council. Will get back to you shortly. My sincere apologies.
