Westlake and Bay Village, Ohio
Completed for the Cuyahoga County Engineer’s Office, the Bradley Road/Naigle Road improvements included the widening and resurfacing of about 3000 feet of Bradley Road from Clemens Road to a location approximately 500 feet north of Naigle Road and resurfacing of about 300 feet of Naigle Road in the Cities of Westlake and Bay Village.
The project widened Bradley Road from two to three lanes and added a new northbound left turn lane at Naigle Road. The project also included the replacement of a single span (20′) reinforced concrete slab cast in place bridge deck on the existing reinforced concrete substructure on Naigle Road. Drainage improvements, and a new sidewalk were also provided.
CT Consultants performed a traffic evaluation of conditions at the intersection of Bradley Road and Naigle Road which included evaluation of the traffic signal warrant analysis performed by the Cuyahoga County Engineer, peak-hour turning movement traffic counts, traffic growth rate projections, level of service (LOS) analyses, and the development of a recommended course of action for the construction of a left turn lane onto westbound Naigle Road from northbound Bradley Road. The recommendations in the final report were used as the basis for design of a new traffic signal which included mast arm installations, a ground-mounted controller, loop detection, emergency vehicle pre-emption, railroad pre-emption, pedestrian devices, signs and pavement markings.
The project provides improvements to the vertical alignment on the approaches to the Norfolk Southern Railroad crossing to increase sight distance and includes removal and replacement of the existing railroad crossing and gates in cooperation with Norfolk Southern Railroad.
