        There was zip in Medina until they built the Underground; so I would say no.

        The TD2 along the Ohio Turnpike and up into 750 Huron, then west, preceded the Underground by many years.

        I m thinking there was a connection between the northern L-4 and the southern L-4 that ran south through Odell, IL and on into St. Louis.  Jim Johnson Grand

            Medina-Akron looks like it terminates into what is now called the 4G "Data Center", at 349 Opportunity Parkway,Akron. This is not the downtown "Palace" at West Bowery, I note this because the one remaining L cable sign downtown points through the former Firestone plant and right down a path into that building, and this is South of West Bowery. I really doubt the cable would miss West Bowery by more then a mile and loop back.
