Little Cuyahoga River Restoration

Little Cuyahoga River Restoration

Phase I - East of Seiberling Street to Martha Ave

Project Objective: The Phase I Little Cuyahoga River Restoration Project will restore approximately, 2,352 LF beginning east of Seiberling Street to Martha Ave. Currently, the river through this reach has a combination of impairments such as channelization, levees, bank armoring and riparian removal/disturbance. The project length has two distinctly different areas that are described best by the existing riparian community. Upstream of Seiberling Street (1,071 LF) the stream is channelized and has a narrow riparian corridor with a mixture of mature and immature trees, while downstream of Seiberling Street (1,301 LF) the riparian corridor has been almost completely removed. The goal of the restoration project is to improve river conditions by expanding a functional floodplain area, increasing stream pattern by adding additional channel length, creating appropriate riffle pool features, enhancing riparian plantings and adding diversity to in-stream habitats.


Phase II - Martha Ave to Goodyear Dam

Project Objective: The Phase II Little Cuyahoga River Restoration Project will restore approximately, 2,170 LF beginning east of existing Martha Ave to the existing Kelly Ave dam. Currently, the river through this reach has a combination of impairments such as channelization, bank armoring and riparian removal/disturbance. The goal of the restoration project is to improve river conditions by expanding a functional floodplain area, increasing stream pattern by adding additional channel length, creating appropriate riffle pool features, enhancing riparian plantings and adding diversity to in-stream habitats. The project entails detailed and specialized river, wetland and floodplain restoration work. This project includes the Little Cuyahoga River Trail.
