2019 Project Image for West Bath Road over the Cuyahoga River Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Project updated: Oct 18, 2019

PHASE: Completed

West Bath Road over the Cuyahoga River Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Bridge is now open.

The West Bath Road Bridge was closed for 150 days starting June 3, 2019. This project is on schedule to reopen November 1, 2019. Downtime was built into the project schedule in order for engineers to analyze bridge beams, complete the final design, and order the steel needed after determining how much of the current bridge was still useable. This project includes rehabilitation of the existing three-span, continuous steel beam structure (Structure No. AKR-048-0615) carrying West Bath Road (CR 48) over the Cuyahoga River. Rehabilitation items include: new reinforced concrete deck, new bridge railing, structural steel repairs, field painting of structural steel, substructure repairs, new reinforced concrete approach slabs, and minimal approach roadway work (pavement, drainage, guardrail, etc.) necessary to tie-in to the bridge. JD Williamson was the contractor on this $1.2 million dollar design-build project.

2020 Project Image for Riverview Road over Slipper Run Storm Damage Repair - NOW OPEN

Project updated: Oct 23, 2020

PHASE: Completed

Riverview Road over Slipper Run Storm Damage Repair - NOW OPEN

The bridge is now open. During a heavy rain storm late Memorial Day afternoon, Monday 5/25, 2.25 inches of rain fell in approximately 40 minutes causing a surge of water in Slipper Run passing under Riverview Road. A tree floating down stream was caught in the culvert type bridge passing under Riverview Road. The blockage caused the stream to rise and forced the upstream end of the culvert to bend upward at an angle of approximately 40 degrees. After bending upward, the culvert tore away from the remaining 1913 constructed stone arch that passes under the roadway. This resulted in a portion of the embankment along the west side of Riverview Road to erode and wash down stream.

Project updated: Feb 9, 2021

PHASE: Construction

Olde 8 at Twinsburg Road Traffic Signal Installation

This project involves the construction of a traffic signal at the intersection of Twinsburg Road and Olde 8 in Northfield Center Township, which is currently an intersection operating with a two-way stop. This intersection was consistently in the top 5 high crash intersection list of County-owned intersections and the Northfield Center Township Trustees also requested improvements. SCE received federal safety funds for an intersection study and the study showed that a signal at the intersection was warranted. The traffic signal project will include the installation of loop detectors and have a battery backup.

2021 Project Image for 2021 Pavement Maintenance Program

Project updated: Feb 10, 2021

PHASE: Construction

2021 Pavement Maintenance Program

The Pavement Maintenance Program includes hot mix resurfacing, chip and seal resurfacing, motor paving, asphalt rejuvenation, crack sealing, and pavement marking on various County roads. The list of roads is below.  

405 resurfacing is also known as Motor Paving. The contractor uses a stationary plant on-site to prepare the asphalt mixture, places it on the roadway, and compacts the mixture with a roller. 422 (chip seal) is then placed on top of the 405.

422 resurfacing is also known as a chip seal. The contractor places an asphalt emulsion on the roadway, spreads gravel on top of the emulsion, compacts the stone into the emulsion with a roller, and then sweeps the excess gravel from the road the same day. Sweeps are repeated about a week later to ensure loose gravel is completely removed from the roadway.

448 resurfacing is also known as Hot Mix Asphalt. The asphalt is prepared in an asphalt plant, transported to the site in heated trucks, placed on the roadway in the desired thickness, and then compacted with a roller.  448 is the most durable (and most expensive) asphalt pavement and resists rutting and can handle heavier traffic loads more than 405 and 422 resurfacing.  It is used in locations that have heavy traffic and a high percentage of truck traffic.

Asphalt Rejuvenation: An asphalt rejuvenating agent is applied to hot mix asphalt pavement that was placed one or two years ago.  The agent restores flexibility and water resilience that the asphalt surface lost due to weathering and the passage of time. Forty-five minutes after the rejuvenating agent is applied, sand is placed over the agent to absorb excess agent and provide enhanced vehicle traction.  One week later, the excess sand will be swept from the road surface.

Crack sealing is a method in which hot sealant is applied to existing cracks in the roadway to prevent water intrusion.
