Investing in Our Neighborhoods

Middleburg Heights 2020 Road Construction Projects

Mayor Castelli and City Council understand that maintaining our roads is a top priority and that is the reason the 2020 Street Repair Program is one of the largest road repair programs in the history of Middleburg Heights.

The 2020 road repair projects include the complete reconstruction of Pearl Road, including base repair, new asphalt pavement, and the installation of concrete sidewalks. Estimated completion is sometime mid-September 2020. The Sprague Road widening project from Webster Road to West 130th Street is moving along. The existing road is being removed and a new widened concrete roadway will be installed, with two lanes and a turning lane. Improvements include new curbs, catch basins, concrete walks, and a water main replacement. Estimated completion is late fall 2020.

Bartholomew Drive from Pawnee Trail to Bagley Road is being entirely reconstructed. The project should be complete by August 2020. Byron Boulevard from the cul-de-sac to Klein Drive will have concrete repairs and an asphalt overlay. The concrete road section of Middlebrook Boulevard from Ramona Drive to Humphrey Road will be entirely reconstructed. The asphalt portion of Middlebrook from Humphrey Road to Smith Road will receive a new asphalt overlay. The project will begin in July 2020. Newton Road from Elmdale to Fairweather will have concrete road repairs and an asphalt overlay. Parklawn Drive from Packard to Big Creek Parkway will have concrete repairs and an asphalt overlay. Plans are being finalized for additional road work for later this year.

City’s Master Plan and Zoning

  • Began process to produce a comprehensive Master Plan for the City with funding through a grant obtained from the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission.
  • Contracted with a planning and zoning expert to review and modernize the City’s outdated zoning codes.

Addressing Flooding Issues

  • Mayor and City Council have been working diligently to address the flooding issues throughout the City.
  • Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District has agreed to fund the construction of detention basins in the Big Creek Parkway area.
  • City has hired an engineering firm with specific expertise in stormwater flooding to provide solutions.

Recreation Department Updates

The indoor pool is receiving a much-needed facelift due to facilities and equipment being near or at the end of life. Major improvements include replacement of the skylights and the dehumidification equipment. Also, a new custom slide, spiral stair tower, and a custom pool play feature will be installed. The indoor pool will be closed during the renovation but is expected to reopen sometime in late fall 2020.

The City of Middleburg Heights was awarded a grant from Cuyahoga County in the amount of $50,000 for the construction of two new pavilions at the Middleburg Heights municipal campus. The two new pavilions will be larger in size and will be ADA compliant. We estimate the pavilions will be completed in the coming weeks.
