Project Overview

Estimated Project Timeline: January 4, 2021 – Mid-June 2021 for road construction and October 2021 for entire project
Total Project Cost: $2,900,000

The project scope includes resurfacing Dunham Road from Mendota Avenue to Tinkers Creek Road and part of Tinkers Creek Road, construction of bike lanes from Mendota Avenue to Tinkers Creek Road, and planting trees. Dunham Road will be widened from 28 feet to 32 feet to accommodate a striped bike lane, as recommended in the Cuyahoga Greenways Plan. The Project provides a vital bike connection between Cleveland Metroparks’ Dunham Park and Bedford Reservation and connect to the Towpath Trail using Tinkers Creek Road bike lanes.

The project is a partnership between the City of Maple Heights, Village of Walton Hills, Chagrin Valley Engineering, Cuyahoga County, Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, Cleveland Metroparks, and West Creek Conservancy. Funding for the project includes approximately $1,900,000 from Cuyahoga County (click here to see the Press Release), almost $40,000 from Cuyahoga County’s Healthy Urban Tree Canopy grant to plant trees along Dunham Road, and another $29,000 from the Healthy Urban Tree Canopy grant for the Tinker’s Creek Watershed Partners to plant trees in Dunham Road Park. A map of the project limits and project updates are included below.
