The 2019 Streets Program will begin in mid-June, to include street resurfacing, repairs and maintenance work. The City of North Olmsted is contracting with Specialized Construction, Inc. for the pavement work and cracksealing this summer. The projects will invest more than $1.2 million into improving city streets.
Streets to be resurfaced include Bretton Ridge Drive, Gareau Drive, Georgette Avenue, Newton Circle, Oak Lane, Sherwoood Drive, Brookpark Road Extension and Sparky Lane.
Other streets will be the focus of increased maintenance efforts. Fitch Road is the recipient of funds from Cuyahoga County to plane and overlay deteriorated areas of the road surface. Also, Barton Road, Mackenzie Road and several other residential streets are on the list for a treatment called rejuvenation, a process intended to lengthen the lifespan of more recently resurfaced streets.
In addition to the City’s Streets Program, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will be managing a project to resurface State Route 252 this year. Construction limits include Great Northern Boulevard between Brookpark Road and Lorain Road and Columbia Road north of Lorain Road. Minor widening is included at the Columbia Road and Lorain Road intersection to better accommodate turn movements of large vehicles along this truck route. The project is an estimated $650,000 with the City of North Olmsted contributing 20 percent toward construction cost. The contractor for the SR 252 project is Chagrin Valley Paving.
Residents along impacted roads will receive notices from the contractors directly regarding the schedule for work.
