$4.1 Million Mastick Road Bridge Replacement Completes Long-Term County Project
CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH – Pending Council approval, the Department of Public Works will be completing the final link of the long-term Mastick Road project through the replacement of the Mastick Road Bridge in the City of Fairview Park.
This $4.1 million project is the last portion of work to be completed by the County after multiple sections of road have been repaired and replaced since 2015.
Funds for this project will go toward the Mastick Road Bridge Rehabilitation of the side-hill structure located midway between Valley Parkway and Eaton Road and will include a multi-use path on the structure that will connect to a future planned path along Mastick Road. The new structure will create a safer connection between the neighborhoods in Fairview Park and the Metroparks.
“This project on Mastick Road is the last link of this important stretch of County road to the western suburbs,” said County Executive Armond Budish. “This road is a vital link for residents in these communities and we are happy to have partnered with Fairview Park and North Olmsted to continue to keep our roads safe.”
A timeline of work on Mastick Road is as follows:
- 2015: The County assisted Fairview Park with an emergency project when there was a culvert failure causing the road to be closed on the City’s culvert.
County Contribution: $400,000, or 80 percent, of the total project cost.
- 2016: Resurfacing of Mastick Road from Columbia Road to the North Olmsted eastern city limit
County Contribution: $742,823, or 100 percent of the total project cost
- 2019: Resurfacing of Mastick Road from the Fairview Park western city limit to Eaton Road will receive final striping in the spring, but was substantially completed in the fall.
County Contribution: $608,632, or 54 percent of total project cost
If approved, construction on the project should begin in early February and be completed by July of 2021.
