Construction Estimate ($M)


Cuyahoga North

West Creek Stabilization in Brooklyn Heights

07-Dec-17 A

07-Jun-18 A

1st Quarter 2023


    This project will include the rehabilitation of West Creek to stabilize the creek and improve stream function  in the Village of Brooklyn Heights. This project also includes addressing the concrete lined channel, retaining walls, and energy dissipater along West Creek adjacent to IR-480 which is in poor condition and an impediment to fish passage.

Mill Creek Restoration and Kerruish Basin Modifications

07-Jul-22 A

1st Quarter 2023

4th Quarter 2024


    The project will restore approximately 2,000 feet of Mill Creek upstream of the Kerruish stormwater basin.  The project is intended to add more storage for the Kerruish basin, improve water quality, provide fish passage, reduce sedimentation, protect exposed sewers and reduce maintenance activities for the Kerruish basin, including woody debris removal on the basin outlet grate. The restoration approach will focus on increasing the interaction between the stream and floodplain. This allows sediment to deposit on the floodplain and can enhances the retention of carbon within the adjacent forested areas. Lowering stream velocity will reduce the energy available for eroding the banks of Mill Creek through the project area.  This design will help meet the objective of capturing fine sediment that is currently being deposited in the basin.
