This historic bridge is a local landmark and community feedback is invaluable to the success of the project. The informal meeting will allow interested parties to review the material and speak to the project team. Fact sheets and comment forms will be available for all attendees.

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 requires Federal agencies to consider the effects of their actions on historic properties. The Section 106 process seeks to incorporate historic values into project planning through consultation among the Federal and state agencies, and other parties with an interest in the effects of the undertaking on historic properties. Individuals or organizations with a demonstrated interest in the effects of the undertaking on historic properties can become consulting parties on the project. The various consulting parties work together to discuss options, provide multiple viewpoints, and strive to seek common agreement on the incorporation of historic preservation values into the project.

If you are interested in becoming a consulting party for the undertaking, CUY-North Main Street Bridge, PID 96956, for an application, contact the Ohio Department of Transportation, District 12, 5500 Transportation Boulevard, Garfield Heights, Ohio 44125.

Solon Road Construction Update

Road work copyAs 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.

Summer Construction on Solon Road

Road ClosedThe Solon Road Waterline Replacement Project will commence on Monday, June 24th, 2013 and will conclude by Friday, August 23rd.

During the first half of the project, traffic will be restricted to Local Access Only in both directions between Monticello Road and Miles Road.

During the second half of the project, local access traffic will be permitted NORTHBOUND ONLY.

Detour routes will be posted. Access to Chagrin Pet & Garden will be maintained following the same information listed above.

Traffic delays are possible.

After the waterline replacement is complete, repaving of Solon Rd. will be scheduled for late Summer / early Fall.

COMPLETED- South Franklin Closed For Water Line Work

Road ClosedConstruction activities to replace the watermain from Maple Street to Washington Street will re-commence on or about Friday, April 12, 2013, weather permitting.  Watermain replacement work will be followed as quickly as possible with resurfacing of the road between South Street and Washington Street.  The scheduled completion date for this final phase of work is May 24, 2013.  Work hours will typically be between 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM.

S. Franklin Street will be closed to through traffic during the course of the project.  A detour will be established using Maple Street and Water Street for through traffic.

SOUTH FRANKLIN RESIDENTS:   Residents will be able to drive through the work zone in the northbound direction to access their homes, normally with little or no delay.   There will likely be a few instances when water service to your home is disrupted in order to make new tie-ins to existing lines.  The shut-down usually lasts four to six hours.  You will be notified a day in advance of planned shut-down periods so that you may plan accordingly.  There is also the possibility that breaks in the existing watermain may occur during construction due to the age and condition of the line, in these instances the water department will issue notices (boil alerts) on a case by case basis. Your patience is appreciated.

We anticipate a smooth and safe installation, although we know there can always be unpredictable events.  If you have questions or issues that arise during the project, you can address them to the Contractor or Village staff on the job site or use the contact list below.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this project.
