CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cuyahoga County Council on Tuesday awarded a $1.1 million grant to Rocky River to help reconstruct its crumbling Bradstreet’s Landing pier.
The money is part of a $2.4 million effort to restore the 590-foot pier and revive the park that surrounds it.
Cuyahoga County funded its portion of the project from a community development grant, which comes from the $7.3 million in casino tax revenue collected by the county annually.
The Lake Road pier has been closed since November due to deteriorating concrete, missing supports and other structural concerns.
Demolition will begin this month and conclude in October. New construction is expected to begin in April.
Councilwoman Nan Baker, who sponsored the legislation along with Council President Dan Brady, Vice President Pernel Jones, and Councilman Dale Miller, said the pier is expected to open sometime next year.
Bradstreet’s Landing is conveniently located across the street from The Normandy campus. It is a favorite place for Normandy residents to spend time and enjoy the Lake Erie shores. We proudly support our growing community and look forward to this development.
