Mayor Castelli and City Council understand that maintaining our roads is a top priority. The Middleburg Heights Department of Public Service coordinates and manages the work with our City Engineer – Mackay Engineering and regional partners, including Cuyahoga County, the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA), and the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Listed below are the planned and funded 2020 Middleburg Heights Road Construction Projects.

Pearl Road Reconstruction
The Pearl Road/U.S. Route 42 Reconstruction Project started April 1, 2020. Karvo Companies is the prime contractor, and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is managing the project. The first phase of the project was from the Ohio Turnpike Bridge (Whitney Road) in Strongsville to Fowles Road in Middleburg Heights. The second phase of the project that started in June 2020 and is estimated to last 90 days is from Fowles Road to W. 130th Street. The project includes base repair, new asphalt pavement, concrete sidewalk installation and repairs, apron repairs, and the installation of ADA compliant ramps. Lane closures and delays are expected.

Project Update: New sidewalks and curb repairs are being installed, and major road work started July 1, 2020. Concrete base repairs and base asphalt overlay on the center land and one eastbound lane are nearing completion, and work will soon be shifting to the westbound lanes.

Sprague Road Reconstruction and Widening
The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works is widening Sprague Road from Webster Road to West 130th Street in Middleburg Heights and Strongsville. 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, ADA curb ramps, and a water main replacement. The project is estimated to be completed in late fall 2020.

Project Update: Eastbound only traffic has been shifted to the newly constructed lane in Strongsville, and concrete paving is scheduled to begin in Middleburg Heights the first week of August.

Bartholomew Drive Reconstruction
Bartholomew Drive from Pawnee Trail to Bagley road was entirely reconstructed with full-depth concrete pavement and curb removal and replacement. The project is complete. To help extend the life of our roads we are again stabilizing the base. Base stabilization starts with pulverizing whatever existing materials are on the site. Then the appropriate additives, like cement powder, are spread on the surface. The pulverizing machine is used again to mix the additives in with the base materials to a set depth. The concrete or other additives then go to work, hardening the other materials. Once the appropriate moisture and hardness are achieved, the material is compacted to reduce spacing and air between the materials. This usually requires several passes with a roller. Finally, a grader is used to ensure a smooth surface on which the concrete road will be laid. The result is a level, attractive, strong, and long-lasting paved surface.

Project Update: Project is complete.
