Schady Road Culvert

Weight Limit Signage has been posted on the Schady Road (County Road) culvert between Falls Pointe Dr. and Lakeview Dr. due to a deteriorating culvert pipe. What does this mean for the average vehicle? The average car or SUV weighs between three and five thousand pounds, which would make safe travel over the culvert. Examples of vehicles that would possibly be affected would be: Class A and Class B vehicles (buses, dump trucks, tractor trailer) .

The culvert is on the fast track to be replaced through Cuyahoga County Public Works. Schedule and timeline are yet to be determined.

For more information on Cuyahoga County’s 2018 Reappraisal, please visit:


This link will provide information on how to better understand the value of your property. Procedures to challenge an increase can be found within this link. A renewal levy will not cause an increase in taxes even with the increase in property values.

Any questions, please contact the Cuyahoga County Fiscal Office at (216) 443-7010.
