Replacement of Mills Road Bridge Over French Creek, Spring 2021

The City of North Ridgeville obtained a grant through the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Municipal Bridge Program to provide federal funding for a major portion of the costs to replace the Mills Road bridge over French Creek.  The bridge is located on Mills Road midway between Westminister Avenue and Greenwich Avenue.  The replacement is necessary due to the serious condition of the bridge deck concrete slab, design loading deficiencies of the foundation, and inadequate waterway opening.

The bridge width will be widened from 27 feet to 40 feet and sidewalks will be added. 

The project is still in the preliminary design stage, and construction is now estimated to begin in Spring of 2021.  

One lane of traffic will be maintained during construction with the use of portable temporary signals.  Alternative detour routes will be 1) S.R. 83, Riegelsberger Road and Jaycox Road or 2) S.R. 83, Center Ridge Road and Jaycox Road.  Part-width bridge construction will be used to complete the bridge in two phases.  Temporary right of way will be acquired in order to provide space to construct temporary pavement to maintain traffic during construction.

The current total cost of the design, construction and right of way acquisition is estimated to be $931,620.  Maximum federal grant funds of $775,188.75 are allotted for this project. There is a 95/5 split between federal grant and local share.

If you have any questions, please contact the Engineering Department at (440) 353-0842.
