DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

Downtown Cleveland is one step closer to having a pedestrian and bicycle bridge that will at last link the area to the city’s lakefront.

On Thursday, August 21, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, and the Group Plan Commission announced that Parsons Brinckerhoff and Boston bridge architect Miguel Rosales would design the new project, which is scheduled for completion by summer 2016.

“All of us in Cuyahoga County are looking forward to working with Parsons Brinckerhoff, Miguel Rosales, the City of Cleveland, and the Group Plan Commission as we move forward on making this public works project a reality,” said FitzGerald. “Linking downtown to the lakefront has long been a goal for policymakers in Cleveland, and I am confident that, as with the Cleveland Convention Center and the Global Center for Health Innovation, we will complete this important project on time and under budget.”

The FitzGerald administration is set to submit legislation for formal approval of the design contract with Parsons Brinckerhoff to Cuyahoga County Council for their approval.
