Bradley Road in Bay Village will be closed at the Lear/Naigle intersection from Monday, July 25 through Aug. 27 for widening and upgrading, according to Dan Galli, Bay Village director of public service and properties.
In addition to Bradley road being closed at the railroad tracks, Naigle Road (which is named Krebs Road in Avon Lake, to the west) will be closed at the bridge culvert just west of the intersection. Naigle Road is not the same as Lear-Nagle Road in Avon.
“The road is being closed for five weeks because the railroad has to come in and do work on the tracks,” Galli said. “There is a possibility that the railroad work can be done in three weeks, and if it is, we will reopen Bradley Road as soon as possible. But, bridge repair work is scheduled on Lear/Naigle and that needs five weeks. So, it will remain closed.”
“The good news is that the work has to be done by June 30, 2012 in order for us to maintain the grant,” Galli said. “But, the contractor asked us to change the phasing to get it done this year. Barring any disastrous weather, we will do that. We are hoping Mother Nature will cooperate.”
The city of Avon Lake receieved notification of construction this week of the pending closure and detours.
Many Avon and Avon Lake residents use the area to access the Crocker-Bassett I-90 exit.
Galli said any additional work that has to be done on the roads after they reopen will be completed between barrels. “They might have to come back to do some minor grading,” he said.
Message boards will go up in the next week to keep people informed about the road work, according to Galli. The city of Bay Village is sending fliers out to residents next week and hopes to set up a road work information line.
“We plan to keep the communication with our citizens as open as we can,” he noted.
The city of Avon Lake will be coordinating the enclosure of ditches on Krebs Road while the Bradley-Naigle intersection is closed. Council approved spending $36,979 for the project.
