With the school year kicked off and the addition of more traffic during the morning and afternoon hours, I encourage you to take advantage of the website www.DriveAkron.com. Hard work and collaboration between departments enabled the City of Akron team to provide this helpful tool for motorists.
DriveAkron.com keeps drivers informed of the status of ongoing improvements around the city, while also providing mobile-friendly, up-to-date information on construction projects in and around Akron. ODOT projects and any other things that may slow your commute are also included.
Individuals travelling from our neighborhoods or surrounding cities, who attend school, work, or volunteer in Akron are encouraged to add this site to your favorites on your computer, tablet or mobile device to keep informed.
I urge you to take advantage of this helpful website provided by the City of Akron. Also, as you drive throughout our city, please remember to slow down in school zones, don’t text and drive, and be safe at all times!
