CLEVELAND — The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works has announced that the Memphis Avenue Bridge in Brooklyn is scheduled to reopen on Monday, Jan. 30, at 5 p.m.
The bridge closed to traffic in May 2022, after engineers noticed a structural deficiency during an inspection.
“I want to thank the residents of Cuyahoga County for their patience and commend the employees in our Public Works Department for their hard work as we get set to reopen the bridge next week,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Chris Ronayne. “Closing a bridge – especially one that is used by approximately 22,000 vehicles a day – is a difficult decision but was absolutely necessary in this instance to ensure everyone’s safety.”
