Lorain County Engineer Ken Carney is pleased to announce that construction will begin Monday, January 21, 2019, on the widening and reconstruction of Cooper Foster Park Road, between State Route 58 and Oberlin Avenue, in the cities of Lorain and Amherst.  The work is being completed by Underground Utilities of Monroeville.

Two-way traffic will be maintained until March 1, 2019.  After that date, traffic will be restricted to east-bound only.  Detour signs will be posted accordingly, but motorists should expect delays during all phases of construction.  All roadway work is expected to be completed by October 31, 2019, weather permitting.
