Summit County Engineer Alan Brubaker, PE, PS would like to alert residents and motorists of the immediate closure of the Cleve-Mass Rd Bridge over Barberton Reservoir located between Minor Rd and Stimson Rd in Copley Township. County maintenance crews discovered rapid deterioration of the outside beams and bridge experts from E.L. Robinson were called in to evaluate the bridge. The County Engineer's office will be closing the bridge immediately to remove the asphalt and evaluate the carrying capacity of the internal beams. The County Engineer will provide a closure status update when the engineering evaluation is complete. The detour route will be posted. The detour will involve State Route 261 and Summit Road.
