City of Bay Village Summer Events


Wolf Road construction will begin on June 6. The first phase will widen the road to the south to accommodate dedicated bike lanes on both sides of the road. As a reminder, travel on Wolf Road between Dover Center and Clague will be eastbound only for the duration of the project, with westbound travel detoured to Lake Road. Other detours will be implemented as needed, please follow all posted signs.

 Ashton Lane Bridge construction will also begin on June 6, with complete road closure for 90 days. Local access will be permitted and detours around the project will be posted. 

For these and all other construction updates, please be sure to visit the city website for up-to-date information.

Three significant road and bridge projects in the city will affect vehicle traffic this year. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will resurface Lake Road from the Rocky River border to Columbia Road and replace the Ashton Lane bridge. Cuyahoga County will resurface Wolf Road from Clague Road to Sutcliffe Drive.

  • Wolf Road – Cuyahoga County will resurface Wolf Road from Clague Road to just east of Cahoon Road and from Cahoon Road west to Sutcliffe. Dedicated bike lanes will be included on each side of the roadway from Dover Center to Clague Roads by widening Wolf Road on the south side, diagram below. Sidewalks will not be impacted except where crosswalk ramps need to be updated to current ADA standards. While Cuyahoga County anticipated that this project would be completed over two years, the contract was recently awarded to a firm that has the resources to complete it in 2022. Construction will begin around June 6 and last until the end of November. To achieve this timeline, one-way eastbound trafficwill be maintained for the duration of the construction project from Dover Center Road to Clague Road. Westbound Wolf Road traffic will be detoured onto Lake Road. There will be temporary detours posted for short periods when construction is occurring in front of the Bay Middle School and Bay Square commercial area. Wolf Road residents will be notified if/when your driveway access will be impacted. If a portion of your driveway apron is removed during the construction process, it will be replaced with the same material that was removed. As part of this project, Clague Road will be restriped from Wolf Road to Lake Road to include bike lanes on both sides. These changes were recommended in the Bay Village Master Plan completed with the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission in 2016. Improvements to the Wolf/Cahoon Road intersection are covered under a separate contract as federal funds were received for this portion of roadway. Construction for this intersection will take place in 2023.
  • Lake Road – The Ohio Department of Transportation will repave Lake Road from the Rocky River border to Columbia Road. The project is expected to start in early July (after Independence Day) and be completed by Labor Day. Traffic will be maintained eastbound and westbound with flagging. Please allow extra travel time for delays.
  • Ashton Lane Bridge – The Ashton Lane bridge across Porter Creek is scheduled for replacement beginning on June 6 with completion estimated in early November. Ashton Lane will be closed for 90 days beginning on June 6. Traffic will be detoured to Bassett, Wolf, and Bradley as signed.

Community Car Seat Check Program

Third Thursday of every month from 2pm until 5pm at the Bay Village Fire Department 28100 Wolf Road

A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that an estimated 46% of car seats and booster seats are misused in a way that could reduce their effectiveness. In an effort to help parents ensure their child’s safety when in a vehicle, UH St. John Medical Center has partnered with local Fire Departments to offer a car seat safety program. They have trained a number of nurses, healthcare workers, and trauma coordinators as certified Child Safety Passenger Technicians (CPST) who can help communities provide parents and caregivers a resource to get their car seats checked or to help them install car seats before (or after) a child is born.

The CPSTs will check the seat, show parents and caregivers how it works, install it, and answer any questions, including how long children should be in the car seat and when to move to them on to the booster seat level. The goal is to ensure that parents and caregivers are educated and comfortable so they can install the car seat themselves.

To learn more about car seat installation, or to schedule an appointment with a CPS Technician, call 440-827-5440
