Interurban Pedestrian Bridge

The Interurban Pedestrian Bridge was set in place across Cahoon Creek on May 4, 2023. The bridge follows the route of the former Interurban Rail Line and is 125 feet long and 12 feet wide. 

The bridge was recommended in the Cahoon Park Connectivity Study completed by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) in 2016. It is expected to cost about $700,000, $475,000 of which will be paid for by two grants from NOACA. The bridge was also awarded state capital funding in 2020.

The West Interurban Connector Trail, also constructed in 2023, connects the western end of the bridge to the Cahoon Basin Trail. The eastern end of the bridge is connected to the Cuyahoga County Library by a crushed limestone trail through the woods along Cahoon Creek. The East Interurban Connector Trail will be a paved trail from the eastern end of the bridge up to the Dwyer Memorial Senior Center and the Family Aquatic Center.
