The Engineering Department is responsible for the design and construction of all improvements within public right-of-ways and easements, including road and sewer projects and new subdivisions. The department maintains records of all sewers, culverts and waterlines, and also keeps on file subdivision plats and individual plot plans for homes, as well as zoning and infrastructure maps. This information is available to the public.
Call the Engineering Department at (440) 580-3120 if you have questions about a road project, traffic, drainage issues, the location of property lines, grading or underground utilities.
Prospect Road Sewer Project
Work is underway on a project aimed at alleviating flooding after rainstorms.
Strongsville has hired Digioia-Suburgan Excavating at a cost of $226,000 to realign about 650 feet of sanitary sewer on Prospect Road, just south of Fair Road.
City Engineer Ken Mikula said the project will "make the flow of water more efficient and help alleviate basement flooding in that area" by reconnecting a 12-inch line with a 30-inch pipe further downstream so the larger line no longer restricts flow into the smaller.
Completion date is scheduled for July 6. Two-way traffic is expected to be maintained throughout.
Sprague Road Waterline
Cuyahoga County's Department of Public Works is overseeing an waterline installation and resurfsacing project on Sprague Road between Prospect and Marks.
Traffic will be maintained with the use of flaggers through the work zone, but delays are possible, county officials said.
Work is scheduled to be completed in July.
Pearl Road Phase 2
Motorists should expect delays along Pearl Road (Route 42) between Drake Road and the county line at Boston Road as a widening project continues.
Pearl Road is expected to remain open to traffic throughout the 18-month project, which is projected for completion in May 2015.
The project involves widening the existing two-lane asphalt road between Drake and Boston roads into a five-lane concrete street with curbs and sidewalks, new storm sewers and a new waterline.
It is designed to smooth out traffic flow and improve safety.
A full-time construction manager is on-site throughout the project. Residents who have a concern or question can contact Chris Brubaker at the local construction office at 17000 Pearl Road, or call (440) 238-5962.
