Trunko Road to Close at West Market on July 17 for Widening Project
That portion of road will be closed for 45 days.
Trunko Road will close at West Market Street on July 17 for 45 days in order to repair and widen 500 feet of the road. Fairlawn officials ask motorists to use Shelley Lynn Road to Morewood Road as the detour.
The road will be widened to accomodate extra traffic from a GetGo that will be built at the corner of West Market and Trunko roads. It will go on the corner of the former Ahern's Florist. Construction on the GetGo will begin in August.
Giant Eagle agreed to pay more than half the cost to widen the road to add a left turn lane and change the traffic signals to include a left turn onto Market.
The $2.2 million station will have six pumps and a convenience store. Customers traveling east on West Market can make a right turn in, but have to exit at Trunko Road. Customers cannot access the gas station by making a left turn from West Market.
Giant Eagle also came to agreements with the neighboring DoubleTree Hotel to make sure there are no deliveries before 5 a.m. or after 10 p.m. Giant Eagle also agreed to build a buffer wall in between the two businesses so noise from the gas station will not disrupt DoubleTree guests.
