Albion Road is Open Again
Repairs make it the 'most expensive road in Strongsville'
A crumbling section of Albion Road that has been closed for 19 months has reopened.
Mayor Tom Perciak said traffic was allowed to start using Albion about noon on Monday.
The city closed the road between Valley Parkway and Handle Road on May 10, 2011 after officials noticed the pavement was crumbling down a hillside.
The fix took 41 pylons placed in 30-foot holes to shore up the embankment and cost about $655,000.
That translates to $1,069 per linear foot, Perciak said. Compare that to the $59 per foot it cost to repair Shurmer Road or the $203 a foot for Sunset Road, the mayor said.
"I think we should put a sign up: The most expensive piece of road in Strongsville, Ohio," Perciak joked.
