N. MAIN STREET BRIDGE PROJECT

[ STONE VENEER PUBLIC INPUT SURVEY ]

NORTH MAIN STREET BRIDGE RENOVATION PROJECT
BRIDGE SPANDREL WALL STONE VENEER SAMPLES

The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works is in the process of designing the renovations to the North Main Street Bridge, with an anticipated start of construction in the spring of 2023.

The County is proposing actual sandstone veneer surfaces for the vertical spandrel walls of both sides of the bridge.  Three (3) stone samples currently available from a local quarry have been provided to the Village.  The actual stones used on the project will depend on availability at the time of construction, but are expected to be similar in appearance.  These samples are not indicative of the actual sizes that will be used on the project, but rather only samples of the material being proposed.  The height of the actual stone courses could vary, up to 10-1/2” tall, and the sizes of the stones will be similar to the stones comprising the existing bridge.

The stone samples are on public display in front of the Chagrin Falls Police Department, 21 West Washington Street, Chagrin Falls from Wednesday, November 17 through Wednesday, December 1.

STONE COLOR POSSIBILITIES

Sample #1 – Tan stone, generally uniform color.

Sample #2 – Tan stone, with veins of contrasting color.

Sample #3 – Grey stone, generally uniform color.

Sample #4 – A blend of some or all three stone types.  This is most reflective of the existing color and pattern on the bridge.

STONE SURFACE CUT POSSIBILITIES

Cut #1 – Flat surface.  See sample #1.

Cut #2 – Beveled surface.  See samples #2 and #3.

[ UPDATE 2019 ]

Posted on March 14, 2019 by Management

NORTH MAIN BRIDGE PROJECT STATUS 3-14-2019
The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works opened bids for the North Main Street Bridge Project on Wednesday, March 13, 2019. There was only one bidder and that bid was significantly over the county’s cost estimate and therefore cannot be accepted by the county.

We have been advised by the County that they are now analyzing the project specifications and that they intend to re-bid the project as soon as they complete their analysis.

They will be notifying the Village administration as soon as they have a firm plan moving forward.  This means that at this time, this project is postponed until further notice.  We will notify the community as soon as we have further information to report.

In regards to the Village project to rebuild the retaining  “wing walls” adjacent to the bridge along both Riverside and Bell Street parks, the Village had planned to perform this project alongside the County project of rebuilding the bridge.  We are now assessing the situation to determine if we will either move forward with the “wing wall” project as a standalone project or postpone it to coincide with the bridge project.  Again, we will notify the community as soon as we have further information to report.

Thank you for your interest and patience as we work through the process to get these projects underway.
