All traffic using Locke Lane must enter at South Water Street and exit at South DePeyster Street. The lane runs through the middle of the Davey Tree and AMETEK redevelopment block.
Kent City Council voted in September to rename the alley "Locke Lane" in honor of Gary Locke, following a 13-month battle with leukemia.
Councilman Garret Ferrara, who suggested renaming the alley, said the gesture was appropriate given Locke's contribution to the downtown redevelopment as a member of the city's senior administration.
