Project Name: CUY DOCK REHAB
PID No.: 80987
Sponsor: Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority
Estimated Total Cost: $8,000,000
Proposed Source of Federal Funds: Repurposed Earmark funds

History/Background: The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, allows States and territories to repurpose certain funds originally earmarked for specific projects more than 10 years ago. The authority under subsection (a) …shall be applied to projects within the same general geographic area within 50 miles for which the funding was designated….

The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority (CCCPA) is the sponsor of two allocated earmarks:

1. OH-351 (Establish a Trans-Erie Ferry line from Cleveland, Ohio to Port Stanley, Ontario); and

2. OH-360 (Construction, including design and engineering, of an approximately 30,000 sq. ft. terminal building to accommodate the Trans-Erie ferry service which departs the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority, Cleveland, Ohio)

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) approved a request to repurpose the earmarks for Improvements to the surface transportation elements of the bulk pier, including pier rail, and bulk head as eligible.

Proposed Project: The proposed project involves the rehabilitation of the existing maritime surface transportation infrastructure including stormwater management infrastructure. The project will consist of placing new sheet pile bulkhead wall (anticipated to be 70 feet deep) with tie backs behind the existing wall along C & P Ore Docks, between the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) Westerly Wastewater Treatment and Whiskey Island Marina (illustrations). The project length is approximately 1,200 feet. The project also involves installation of stormwater management infrastructure.

The project’s estimated total cost, provided by the sponsor, is $8,000,000. The estimated cost of preliminary engineering (PE) is $650,000, which will be locally funded. The estimated cost of construction (C) is $7,150,000, utilizing $6,384,126 in repurposed earmark funds and $765,874 in local funds.
