Our primary goal was to transform the Brecksville site into an ecotourism destination within the larger network of the Cuyahoga River. During the research phase of our project, we discovered that Brecksville was in close proximity to another city, Macedonia, on the east side of the river. These two cities both have tributaries running through them, making them connected by the Cuyahoga. Each city lacked certain amenities that the other city had, essentially creating a balance between the two. The routes that connected these two cities (both water and vehicular) pass through the site at Brecksville. We realized that to achieve our overall goal of making the site at Brecksville a destination within a larger network, we had to first strengthen the connection between Brecksville and Macedonia and their connection with the park.
As it stands, the main vehicular route that connects the two cities runs along the Route 82 Bridge which passes through the site 150 feet above the river. To integrate the connection between the two towns with the park, we created a stepped down wetland system and bike path that will move both water and people from the bridge down to the park. Existing infrastructure within our site includes the Ohio + Erie Canal, the Brecksville Dam, the Cuyahoga Valley Railway, the Station Road Bridge, and the Route 82 Bridge. We believe that our work with the bridge is a natural move forward for the site. By continuing the rich infrastructural tradition of the past, we are creating a local amenity for the present and a regional destination for the future.
