Macedonia -- Full access to Shepard Road in Macedonia, which was restricted on the northbound side of the intersection July 5, was restored Sept. 2.

The closure was part of the $4.6 million, state-funded widening of Route 82 to the Twinsburg line, including the addition of a two-way left-turn lane in the center of the road.

The work also included improvements to the Shepard Road/Route 82 intersection.

Access to Shepard Road south of Route 82 was closed October through December last year, as crews installed a storm sewer and began improving the intersection.

The project was scheduled for completion later this month.
