Madison Avenue Temporary Road Closure in Painesville Township – Update

Lake County Engineer, James R. Gills, PE,PS issued an update today for the road closure on Madison Avenue in Painesville Township between Woodworth Avenue and Virginia Avenue. 

While no physical work is being performed on the wall at this time, there is a significant amount of work being done.  The County Engineer has contracted with a Consultant that has developed a method for the wall repairs.  We have worked with NOACA and the ODOT to obtain funding to help cover the expenses associated with the repairs.  And, the Consultant is currently working on construction drawings and bid documents in accordance with ODOT design standards and reviews.

Presently, we anticipate that the plans will be advertised for bid late this year.  Construction of the wall and reconstruction of all of the catch basins along Madison Avenue will be performed over the winter.  Both are required to be complete and for the road to be re-opened to traffic in April 2021.  Once the wall and catch basin work is complete and the asphalt plants have re-opened in the Spring of 2021, Madison Avenue will be repaved.

Our Consultant and engineers from our office will continue to monitor the site until the construction is complete.  We understand that this is an  inconvenience but we believe that the closure is necessary to protect public welfare and safety.  Drivers should not try to drive around and/or move the barricades to gain access.

Suggested alternate route:

Woodworth Avenue, Casement Avenue, US 20 (North Ridge Road) and Bowhall Road.
