Repairs on State Route 82 to Close Road For Two Weeks in 2012

There is a failed culvert under the road.

Brecksville City Council approved a proposal from CTL Engineering Inc., to perform some tests on state Route 82 during its at .

The project in question is a failed culvert under state Route 82—residents might have noticed a barrier of orange traffic cones blocking off the area on Royalton Road near the city line. City Engineer Gerald Wise brought up the problem at a council meeting in October, and members approved for Wise and Donald G. Bohning & Associates to create the design. The cost was not to exceed $20,000.

At Tuesday’s meeting, they approved a bid of approximately $4,100 from CTL Engineering to do some geotechnical testing of the area and make recommendations to prevent future slippage. The aging culvert directs water under the road, and the original suggestions call for both its replacement and for repairs to the slope.

The testing won’t affect residents, but the construction next spring or summer will.

Wise said during the committee meeting that during the first two weeks of construction, part of state Route 82 will have to be completely closed to traffic. Drivers will be detoured via Old Royalton Road and Highland Drive. Residents will be notified of this future closure and detour soon in the next few weeks, Wise said.

Construction will take longer than two weeks—probably more like three to four months—but Wise said the closure will just last through those first two weeks.
