City Council approves legislation to stabilize hillside at Irishtown bend

(Plain Press, October 2020) At its September 23rd meeting Cleveland City Council adopted legislation (Ord. No. 592-2020) authorizing the city to join the Cuyahoga County Port Authority on a major project to stabilize a hillside eroding into the Cuyahoga River, threatening commercial shipping. The hillside, known as Irishtown Bend, sits along a section of Franklin Avenue, just east of West 25th Street, which overlooks a bend in the river.

     The $25.5 million project includes rebuilding 2,600 feet of bulkhead along the riverbank and building a 17-acre park with a view of downtown Cleveland. The city’s share of the project is $1 million. The work is scheduled to begin in early 2022.
