Traffic in Kent, even when the University is in session, tends to flow quite good — which is why I wanted to be sure you knew about the closing of Stow Street (Summit Street extended down by the railroad tracks) next week so you could plan your trips around town accordingly. The closure is being done so that CSX can perform track maintenance. Here’s the press release.
