Mill Creek MetroParks will begin the Lake Cohasset Improvement Project starting today. The project includes reconstruction of the failed shoulder on West Cohasset Drive as well as shoreline cleanup around portions of Lake Cohasset. The project will last approximately 4-5 weeks. During this time, West Cohasset Drive and the East Cohasset Hiking Trail will close periodically to public access.
Cleanup of the shoreline will include removal of woody debris including fallen and/or dead limbs, branches, and trees. Lake Cohasset water levels will be periodically adjusted and continually monitored to assist with shoreline cleanup and shoulder reconstruction efforts. To further aid in the cleanup, the MetroParks has obtained an Ohio EPA Open Burn Permit to burn woody debris on site.
