Future Projects

Dunford Betterment Survey

If you have noticed pink flags around, it is because the Columbia Gas engineering team is surveying the area ahead of a possible project in the future. More information will be available if and when the project is finalized.

UPDATE (9/21/2021): Columbia Gas has communicated to the City of Westlake that it anticipates a pipeline replacement project beginning later this year and intends to keep the stakes in the ground that have been in place for some time now. Columbia acknowledged that some residents are growing frustrated with the presence of the stakes and that residents may remove them if they want for the time-being. Columbia will then have to re-stake as necessary when the project begins. If at any point, Columbia makes the determination that the project will not go forward until 2022, the company has said it will remove all remaining stakes at that time.

If you have any questions about this project, please call Columbia Gas at 1-800-344-4077 or visit www.columbiagasohio.com. You may also use the contact information below:

Westlake proposes to complete reconfiguration of I-90/SR 252 (Columbia Road) Interchange

The City of Westlake is proposing to complete the I-90/SR 252 (Columbia Road) Interchange Reconfiguration project by reconstructing the westbound side of the interchange. The eastbound side was reconstructed in 2017 as project CUY-90-3.56, PID 88665. This project (CUY-90-3.56 WB, PID) will fulfill the city's commitment to complete the reconstruction of the entire interchange.

The proposed project consists of consolidating traffic and reconfiguring intersections within the interchange. The intersection of Sperry Road/SR 252 would be reconfigured and the westbound I-90 exit ramp to northbound SR 252 would be removed. Traffic would then be combined on the loop ramp for the westbound I-90 exit to southbound SR 252. The loop ramp will be widened to two lanes and will intersect SR 252 opposite of Sperry Road. This reconfiguration will combine two closely-placed signalized intersections into one.

Due to increased traffic volumes for the entrance ramp from northbound SR 252 to the westbound I-90 entrance ramp, a dual left turn lane will be provided and the entrance ramp widened to two lanes.

All improvements will be completed within the exiting right of way. No additional property will need to be acquired.

This $4,300,000 construction project is expected to begin in late 2021. Questions and/or comments regarding the project may be submitted by Nov. 29, 2020, to Robert P. Kelly, Director of Engineering, City of Westlake, 27700 Hilliard Boulevard, Westlake, Ohio 44145. For further information or to submit formal comments, please contact the Westlake Engineering Department at (440) 617-4145. Comments may also be emailed to the Engineering Department at engdept@cityofwestlake.org.

Kenley Court Retention Basin

The City of Westlake partnered with Cuyahoga County Soil & Water to apply for a state grant to improve the retention basin around the Point West Stream. If approved, the project Proposed improvements around Point West Stream. would enhance drainage and water quality along the stream and in the surrounding area.
