As the initial phase of the work on Solon Road ends, the Chagrin Falls Streets Department would like to update Chagrin Falls residents. This project is administrated and paid for by Cuyahoga County. Solon Road residents received a flyer from Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works with some project information. The flyer distributed is posted for download below.
Although the flyer from the County states that the project will not be completely done until July of 2014, there will be a smooth road to drive on before winter starts.
Here is a more detailed description of the work done and the work still to be done from our Streets Department.
1. The new waterline construction project on Solon Rd. is complete. All residents are connected to the new line, and all roadway trenches have been filled with asphalt. All driveway aprons and sidewalks have been restored. All turf areas have been restored with topsoil, seed, and straw.
2. Cuyahoga County is responsible for the roadway repaving phase of the project. Preliminary work was started on September 9th. Drainage and some preparatory work will be done first.
3. We are told that by mid-October, the part of Solon Rd. that runs through Chagrin Falls will be ground down and recycled, and the base layer of new asphalt installed. This will ensure a solid and smooth driving surface through the Winter months.
4. In the Spring of 2014, the final top layer of asphalt will be installed and the roadside berm areas restored. This should be completed by July of 2014.
