Sherman House move to close Kent streets Saturday morning

staff report Published:

Kent roads and intersections the Wells Sherman House will move through Saturday will be closed during the duration of the structure's relocation.

The building, located on East College Street, will be moved to its new home on North Water Street beginning at 7 a.m.

The scheduled route begins on Haymaker Parkway at College/DePeyster east to Erie Street, then west on Erie Street to South Water Street, north on South Water Street crossing Main Street before being sat down at 247 N. Water St.

City officials estimate any roads blocked for the move should reopen by 9 a.m., however, an extended road closure may be required on North Water Street between the intersection of Columbus and Portage streets to allow for placement of the building, Service Director Eugene Roberts said.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area if possible and anticipate delays if travelling on roads in the house's path.
