Floodgate installed on Barber Rd

A new floodgate has been installed at the intersection of Barber Road and Morgan Street. A gate was installed toward the other end of the road earlier this year after the flooding back in June. Look out for more information in the next edition of the Barberton Herald.

    Maybe you guys need to look up what a floodgate is. A floodgate is designed to stop water. This is not stopping anything but cars.

    How great Instead of spending the tax they leveled on us years ago to fix storm water issues all they managed to do was install a gate . BRAVO Barberton great use of our tax dollars.

    I grew up on last house on Case Ave. Around 1995 Barber Rd flooded. Got off 76 at Barber Rd. heading towards Norton Ave. All barriers were removed. 6 cars headed same direction. We all received tickets for driving in flood zone. City of Norton cops. It was a complete set-up.

    It’s in the middle of the flood zone , why wouldn’t you put one by Fred Martin and one at Morgan street? You would have to drive down to the creek then turn all the way around. Just a bad spot for it. And who is going to go shut it?

    I don’t think it will keep the water out.

    Great. There goes business.

    It’s sure a lot cheaper for barbertuckey. To hell with the businesses and homes that constantly flood bc barbertuckey won’t dredge the tusc and it’s tributaries. Oh, that’s right! Then barbertuckey’s “owners” would have to “unpollute” their service lakes!👀 THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! 😱 Or…. just move out of barbertuckey like my son’s family had to do on 27th st. Whata joke…. 🤣😂🤣😂

      Stupid comment. This just stops adventurous drivers from mosey-ing up the street

        wow Sally you must be a detective

      • Ed on October 12, 2019 at 1:06 pm

        was just a play on words Sally. Common sense knows it won’t stop the water. U must be from Akron.
