  THE DEER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM IS HERE AGAIN.

The Cleveland MetroParks will be continuing their deer management program as in past winters.  A portion of Hinckley Reservation is within the municipal boundaries of Richfield Township and a deer herd reduction program is planned for this area. 

From Noon to as late as Midnight on several days during mid-January through mid-March the main body of Hinckley Rervation will be closed to the public.  

Deer will be culled by using highly skilled and trained marksmen for the purpose of re-establishment of a balanced ecosystem.   All shots will be fired from elevated trucks or tree-mounted platforms using noise-suppressed rifles.  Safety is the number one goal and the Richfield Police Department has been notified.  Please note that the reservation will be closed completely during the program.  Signs to that affect will be posted.  Residents in close proximity to this area will be sent a letter directly from the MetroPark. 

Any questions can be referred to Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Brian Zimmerman at telephone number 216.635.3295. 

Bridges on State Route 21 (Brecksville Road) and State Route 303 (West Streetsboro) are Open!  

State Route I-271 northbound and southbound will have various lane restrictions between Broadview Road and the Ohio Turnpike.  This work is part of a $46.4 million project to reconstruct the pavement along I-271 from Broadview Road to the Ohio Turnpike.  The entire project is scheduled to be completed by late July, 2017. 

MOTORISTS need to be aware of various routes in Summit County that are impacted by different road projects in process.

PLEASE ADD ADDITIONAL TIME TO YOUR DAILY COMMUTE AND SLOW DOWN AND BE AWARE OF THE ROAD WORKERS.
