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.

Current Projects


BRIDGE DECK ON PEARL -- Beginning March 26, 2018 work will begin on the Pearl Bridge over the Ohio Turnpike to replace the bridge deck. The project is expected to be complete by October 1, 2018.
 
This is an Ohio Turnpike Project. Contractor is Mosser Construction.
 
Traffic will be maintained, one lane in each direction, throughout the project. Expect delays.

SEWER PROJECT -- A sanitary sewer project on Drake, Bowman and Fetzer will start the week of October 2, 2017. Work on Drake Road between Pearl Road and Ash Drive will begin Oct. 10. One lane will remain open on Drake, with traffic maintained at all times using flaggers and temporary signals, but delays should be expected.

TOWN CENTER -- The city is planning to upgrade several intersections in the center of town in summer 2018 to improve pedestrian safety and access to the Town Center area.

Pedestrian signals and curb ramps will be upgraded at the intersection of Pearl and Royalton, Pearl and Westwood, and Pearl at Strongsville Middle School. Traffic detectors capable of bicycle detection will also be installed. Stamped concrete crosswalks will be added, as will handicapped-accessible sloped curbs with "truncated domes" that vision-impaired pedestrians will be able to feel.

At the Pearl-Royalton corner, the traffic signals will be upgraded -- including new signals hung on mast arms rather than wires -- and pedestrian refuge islands will be added.

In addition, wayfinding signs, crosswalks and bicycle racks will be added to Freedom Trail.

The city received a $141,000 grant to pay a portion of the cost of the project, which is part of a larger Town Center District Redevelopment Plan completed by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency in 2015. The plan recommends improving pedestrian and biker accessibility and safety to the Town Center area.

The city has already instealled stamped-concrete crosswalks, which are textured to improve visibility, at a number of locations along Westwood Drive and Zverina Lane.

Construction on the next phase is to start this summer and will take about three months.

Town Center is roughly bordered by Zverina on the north, Royalton Road on the South, Pearl to the west and the Greens of Strongsville to the east. It includes the Commons, Strongsville Library, police station, Strongsville Middle School and the Ehrnfelt Rec Center.
