Mill Creek MetroParks is soliciting public comment for an upcoming improvement project. Rogers Bridge and Orchard Meadow Bridge are two historic stone arch bridges located along Bear Creek in Mill Creek Park. The proposed rehabilitation project will improve the experience and safety for vehicular and non-vehicular traffic, preserve the bridges’ original function, and restore their aesthetic appeal.
The project consists of furnishing labor, materials and equipment necessary to clean, repair and tuck point stone masonry, construct retaining curbs and replace the pavement over the bridge with asphalt concrete, a waterproof paving mat, and underdrains. The bridges will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic during various construction phases of the project.
The project is substantially funded by a Federal Highway Administration Transportation Alternatives Grant.
Public comment will be received by the MetroParks for a period of thirty (30) days from this posting. Please submit comments to: Mill Creek MetroParks; RE: Slippery Rock Bridge; P.O. Box 596; Canfield, Ohio 44406-0596.
The project is anticipated to commence in the summer of 2015. Please call 330-702-3000 with questions.
