Albion-Webster Sewer Project Begins

Work is under way on the long-awaited Webster-Albion sewer project. 
The job will include installing a new sanitary sewer, laterals for future house connections, and new driveway aprons, sidewalks and storm sewers where they are disturbed. New asphalt will also be poured on Webster between Albion and Sprague roads.
Two-way traffic will be maintained during construction, which is expected to last until mid-October. 
Ward 1 Councilman Jim Kaminski is delivering letters to residents affected by the project, including a timeline that shows when they can expect the sewer work to wrap of (late August), repaving to begin and assessments to be assigned.
Kaminski said mail will be delivered to the south side of Albion and the west side of Webster even though mailboxes will be removed for a few days.
Residents will have access to their driveways throughout, except for a brief period when workers are crossing their driveway with utilities. 
Residents will receive notices from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health in early 2024 requiring them to tie in to the new sanitary line. 
Cost of the project won't be determined until after the work is finished. Kaminski said the city has received a $500,000 grant from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, and is applying for others, to offset the cost. Residents will be assessed the remaining cost of the work. They will be able to pay the full amount in cash, or it will be added to their property tax bills over a 20-year period.
