Weather permitting, Route 8 southbound will be down to one lane from Tallmadge Avenue to Perkins Street from 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22 until 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 25. Significant delays are expected.

If you are coming to events on campus this weekend, you should leave home early. We recommend that motorists follow this alternative route:

  1. exit Route 8 at Tallmadge Avenue and turn right onto Tallmadge Avenue (westbound);
  2. turn left onto Main Street (southbound);
  3. after the All American Bridge, Main Street turns into South High Street;
  4. remain on South High Street until you get to University Avenue;
  5. turn left into University Avenue, which will take you past E.J. Thomas Hall.

Even if you take the alternative route, you should anticipate significant delays.

The Ohio Department of Transportation will postpone the project if poor weather is forecasted. We will send out word if we learn that the work has been postponed.

ODOT is repairing the deck of the Route 8 bridge over North Street and the Little Cuyahoga River.

The University of Akron's Zipmail is a compilation of University announcements for University students, sent each Friday unless circumstances require otherwise. The deadline for submissions to be considered by the University is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Zipmail is a University of Akron communication vehicle established for the benefit of The University of Akron to communicate with its students. Items will be accepted for publication only when the University is directly involved in the activity through participation, sponsorship, or partnership with one of its recognized organizations, colleges or departments. The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.

Items to be considered for inclusion in Zipmail should be sent through the Zipmail Event Submission Form. Due to the volume of submissions received, items will not run more than one time.

Questions about specific announcements should be made to the contact person/department/organization listed in the announcement.Your event will automatically be forwarded to the University's online calendar. The Zipmail Coordinator can be reached at x2837.
