In 2023, the city will complete construction of a new pedestrian bridge across Cahoon Creek along the route of the former Interurban Rail Line. The Interurban Pedestrian Bridge will be 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.
Trails to connect the eastern end of bridge to the Cuyahoga County Library and Dwyer Memorial Senior Center are in the planning stages. The West Interurban Connector Trail will connect the western end of the bridge to the Cahoon Basin Trail and is planned for construction in 2023.
The bridge will be similar in design to the one pictured below.
