MEDIA ADVISORY: Immediate Closure of Wright Road Bridge over Pigeon Creek

Print

Copley Township, OH – Summit County Engineer Alan Brubaker, PE, PS would like to alert residents and motorists of the immediate closure of the Wright Road Bridge over Pigeon Creek, located between Jacoby Road and Collier Road, in Copley Township. County inspectors have been evaluating the load limited bridge often to measure deterioration ahead of the planned bridge replacement project to take place in 2020. Rapid deterioration due to repeated use of the bridge by large trucks have necessitated the complete closure of the bridge until it can be replaced. The County would like to thank Bertolini Trucking Company for their cooperation in routing their large trucks around the bridge and to remind other trucking companies to please abide by load limits on bridges and highways.

The County has received grant funding from the County Engineer’s Association Local Bridge Program for the bridge replacement that was originally slated for 2022. Due to the deterioration of the bridge, the County asked for the funding to be moved up to 2020 and that request was approved. Design plans are complete, and the right-of-way is cleared for the project. Currently the project plans are at the Ohio Department of Transportation awaiting approval to move ahead with bidding the project. The County has asked ODOT to expedite the approval. The anticipated construction start date is April/May of 2020.

The detour route will involve Collier Road, State Route 162, and Jacoby Road.

Community Alert: Surface Water Management District Activity in Western Summit County

Print

Bath Township, OH- The Summit County Engineer has hired the engineering consulting firm of Sustainable Streams, LLC to perform a condition survey of the streams and ditches draining into the Yellow Creek watershed. The majority of this drainage network is within Bath Township, with some segments extending into adjacent jurisdictions such as Copley Township, Sharon Township, Granger Township, Richfield Township, the Village of Richfield, the City of Fairlawn, the City of Cuyahoga Falls, and the City of Akron. This field evaluation is an essential first step of our study to plan drainage improvements to be undertaken by the Surface Water Management District.

These streams are located outside the roadways, some within easements or on township land, and some without easement on private property. Accordingly, it will be necessary for Sustainable Streams staff to enter private properties in order to observe the current field conditions of these streams.

Sustainable Streams engineers will carry personal identification, including driver’s licenses and business cards, and a copy of a letter on Summit County Engineer official letterhead explaining the project. The condition survey is scheduled to start approximately December 3, 2018 and will likely be completed by the end of December, with potential follow up site visits in January through April of 2019.

If you have project concerns or would like additional information on the details of this project, please contact David Koontz, PE, SI (330-643-8537).
