CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH - The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works is seeking public input to replace three bridges on Pleasant Valley Road, located in the City of Independence and Village of Valley View.

The project will replace Bridge 09.03 over Riverview Road, Bridge 09.35 over the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, and Bridge 09.68 over the Cuyahoga River, Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, Ohio and Erie Canal, and Canal Road.

Traffic on Pleasant Valley Road will be maintained during construction, using part-width techniques and detours. Short term closures on Canal Road, Riverview Road, and the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail will be required. Construction is currently scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2022 and last approximately 24 months.

The majority of the project is located within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad train service will be maintained throughout construction, as well as other outdoor recreational assets in the area.

Questions or comments will be received until Thursday, August 19, 2021 and can be directed to:
