Several roads in Streetsboro were reopened shortly before noon after being closed this morning because of heavy overnight rain and flooding.
The roads that were closed include Russell Drive near Dorothy Drive around 6:30 a.m., S.R. 303 between Stone Road and Jefferson Street around 7:15 a.m., and the section of Aurora-Hudson Road just short of the Wellman Road intersection around 9:15 a.m.
Russell Drive and Aurora-Hudson Road reopened shortly before noon today.
Streetsboro Police Chief Darin Powers said it was not a surprise, given the rain, that some roads experienced flooding.
“When we have heavy rain, we have areas we know are going to be an issue because we’ve had them before,” he said.
The residents of about 24 apartment units at Streetsboro Village Square could not get out of their complex during the flooding, according to Powers.
“Our advice to them would be to ask for a ride from friends or family,” he said. “The problem is, driving across the lawn isn’t really the best option.”
