Columbus Road Lift Bridge

Cuyahoga County, OH

Project Summary

TranSystems was contracted by Cuyahoga County Engineer for a study, rehabilitation and partial replacement, and construction owner's representative services for the Columbus Road Lift Bridge over the Cuyahoga River. Portions of the 1940-built bridge were in serious condition and it was identified as a Select Bridge in ODOT's Ohio Historic Bridge Inventory, and determined eligible for the National Register. The bridge underwent a $40M comprehensive rehabilitation with partial replacement, at great cost savings for the client, versus the total replacement option.
