Bell Street Closure All Day May 7th

Due to unforeseen circumstances at the Walters Road project site, BELL STREET between Cleveland Street and Ridgewood Road will be CLOSED on MAY 7TH, 2018 from 6:00 a.m. until 7 p.m, with access for local residents ONLY.  The intersection of Bell Street and Walters Road will be closed completely.

The detour to use for this period is Cleveland Street to East Washington Street to Ridgewood Road, and vice versa.  Signs will be posted.

**Residents living on Walters Road and Hickory Hill Road are advised to come down Bell Street from Ridgewood Road, and access will be provided for them to get to their houses. We anticipate that this closure will only be in effect for one to two days, and we are working to minimize the delay as much as possible.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Walters Rd – Village Capital Improvement Program

An update from your Streets & Sidewalks Committee

The Walters Road Reconstruction Project is scheduled to start the week of April 16th and conclude in mid-October. As part of the Village Capital Improvement Program, the work will involve replacing the sanitary sewer system, replacing the water main, removing the Hickory Hill sanitary sewer pump station, reconstruction of Walters Road, and the addition of sidewalks on the north side of Walters from the Village line to Bell Street.  

For the duration of this project, Walters Road will be one way with all traffic flowing north bound, leaving the village. Due to the size of the equipment, width of the road and scope of the project, please be prepared to expect delays and consider alternative routes. CFEVSD Transportation, Russell and South Russell Police Departments have all been made aware of the project and changes to the traffic pattern.

The Village Council awarded the contract for this project to Mr Excavator. They will be working 4 x 10-hour days which provides flexibility to make up weather delays. Residents are advised that there will be occasional interruption of water services due to the water line replacement and notices will be provided in advance.

Public Input On Main Street Bridge Design

Parks Commission Meeting: Bridge Design Input

Monday, September 11, 2017

8:30 am

Village Hall

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.
