The Summit County Engineer plans to replace the structurally deficient Wright Road Bridge over Pigeon Creek. The existing bridge is located on Wright Road between Penelope Drive and Collier Road in Copley Township.

About 0.119 acre of permanent right-of-way will be required from four (4) parcels. Additionally, 0.030 acre of temporary right-of-way will be required from four (4) parcels throughout the project area. Right-of-Way acquisition will begin in spring 2019 and construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2020. Construction will last approximately 130 days. Project construction cost is currently estimated at $697,000.

Access to all residences, businesses, and properties within the construction limits will be maintained at all times during construction of the project. However, during construction, the existing bridge will be removed and replaced, and out of service with a proposed detour. The detour will be Wright Road, to Collier Road, to Copley Road, to Jacoby Road and vice versa with abundant signs along the detour route labeled WRIGHT ROAD DETOUR to properly guide travelers. Detailed construction and lane restriction information will be posted along Wright Road, Penelope Drive, and Collier Road prior to the start of the project construction.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
