Lakeshore Boulevard Relief Sewer Presentation

Thank you to everyone who attended last night's Community Meeting regarding the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's Lakeshore Boulevard Relief Sewer.

Below is a copy of the presentation:

As discussed in the meeting, there are several benefits associated with this project.  This new relief sewer will not replace the existing sewer beneath Lakeshore Boulevard, but rather supplement that sewer's capacity.

By increasing the amount of flow the Sewer District's infrastructure can transport, we will not only reduce the amount of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) into Lake Erie and Euclid Creek, but reduce basement flooding in the area.

This new sewer will run from Triangle Park (just east of Euclid Creek) to Rosecliff Avenue.  In addition, new sewers will also be constructed on East Park Drive and Crestland Road.  These sewers will be constructed using an open-cut method, meaning that the contractor will dig large ditches within Lakeshore Boulevard and install sewer pipe.

When this project is complete, the Sewer District will resurface ("curb-to-curb") the following roads:

  • Lakeshore Boulevard from Louis Stokes Bridge to Rosecliff Avenue
  • East Park Drive from Lakeshore Boulevard to Dorchester Drive
  • Crestland Road from Lakeshore Boulevard to 17720/17725 Crestland Road.
If you have any questions, please contact the Sewer District's Customer Service Department at 216.881.8247.
