More Detailed Information
On Tuesday, May 30, the bridge located on Richmond Road just north of White Road was closed to all traffic due to an Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) construction project. Two-way traffic is expected to be restored by mid-August to beginning of September. The project is expected to be fully complete in the fall. Motorists traveling north on Richmond Road will be to a detour using White Road and Bishop Road. ODOT has posted detour signs in the area, and a new traffic control signal has been added to the intersection of White Road at Bishop Road. All area public safety agencies in neighboring jurisdictions have been notified about the road closure. Richmond Heights Police and Fire resources have been deployed on both the north side and south side of the bridge closure to respond to calls for service. Thank you to the University Hospitals Richmond Medical Center for providing Richmond Heights safety forces with office space for personnel and a staging area for equipment. Mutual aid agreements are also in place with surrounding police and fire agencies to provide additional assistance to Richmond Heights in the event of an emergency.
