Cleveland Metroparks Wendy Park Bridge

Project 198-19
Cleveland, OH

The construction of the Wendy Park Bridge will link the Cleveland Foundation Centennial Lake Link Trail to Wendy Park on Whiskey Island and Lake Erie. The project consists of constructing the substructure for and erecting a new 500-foot prefabricated three-span truss with tied-arch truss center span pedestrian bridge over the Norfolk Southern Railroad, Salt Road and Whiskey Island Drive. The work includes the south approach ramp/embankment retaining walls, drainage, lighting and relocating a portion of Whiskey Island Drive. With the end of the settlement period, the Operations Team is currently putting the final touches on the substructure and modular block wall. The three-span steel structure is currently being fabricated in Minnesota and is scheduled to be installed before the end of the year.
