Rocky River plans to replace 290 feet of the crumbling Bradstreet’s Landing pier — and would like to revive the tired park surrounding it.
The state last year agreed to pay at least $350,000 to remove and replace the fishing pier, according to a recent meeting. It’s $2.3 million job, requiring demolition, new material and barges. The city has requested more state funding this year.
The city is working to secure necessary permits now. The work could be done next year.

“It’s just what that park needs. It really is a beloved regional piece of infrastructure,” said city Director of Public Safety Service Mary Kay Costello. “It’s used a lot now. And I know these improvements will make it even more popular. We’re so excited.”
