Parks Commission Meeting: Bridge Design Input
Monday, September 11, 2017
The Main Street bridge over the falls is slated to be rebuilt in the next few years. This is a Cuyahoga County project. Construction will begin after Art by the Falls in June 2019 and will be completed by the Fall of 2020. There are plans to maintain one way traffic across the bridge for the length of the project.
The County has asked for input on two aspects of the bridge design—the type of railing and the type of facing. With respect to facing, in addition to the aesthetics, an issue is whether to use a form that would allow poured concrete to look like stone, whether to use a stone facing material, or whether to use actual stone.
The Parks Commission has planned a meeting to get input from the public and to address these topics next Monday, September 11 at 8:30 am at Village Hall. Members of the Architectural Review Board are also invited to attend to provide input.
If you’d like to provide input on the bridge design, please attend the Parks Commission meeting next Monday.
