The Richmond Road Resurfacing Project will begin on Monday, July 10, 2017, weather permitting. The project will consist of removing the existing asphalt pavement surface, performing any required pavement base repairs, and the installation of a new asphalt pavement surface. Four culverts beneath Richmond Road, located between Columbus Road and Solon Road will also be replaced prior to the start of the pavement reconstruction work. This project is a joint effort between the Village of Oakwood and the City of Solon. The project has been awarded to Ronyak Paving and the work will be substantially completed by September 12, 2017. Typical working hours will be 7:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday-Friday. Construction may occur on Saturdays and off hours as required to maintain the project schedule or to work within high traffic intersection areas.

Beginning on July 10, 2017 the section of Richmond Road between Columbus Road and Solon Road will be closed to through traffic for a period of 14 days in order to complete the culvert replacement work. Local access for residents and emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times. All other traffic will be directed around the construction area per the attached detour plan. Please note that during this 14-day period the local access may change from day to day depending on which culvert is being replaced.
