At last, Trunko Road is near completion, according to Fairlawn city officials.
Crews put the finishing touches on the road Monday night by striping in the lanes. All that's left to complete is the signal work.
City Engineer Nick Spagnuolo said the road will not be opened until signal work is done and tests have been completed to make sure multiple signals aren't flashing green lights.
Trunko Road was closed in July to start a widening project. The road improvements will help accommodate increased traffic from a new Giant Eagle GetGo gas station at the corner of West Market Street and Trunko. Construction will start once the former Ahern's/Cavalier Cleaners building is demolished later this week.
Deputy Service Director Ernie Staten expects the signal company to be out Tuesday morning and to have tests complete by the end of the week.
Signs are already posted on the mast arms going east and west on West Market Street letting motorists know the signals will change, Spagnuolo said.
