Gorge Metro Park

  • The United State Environmental Protection Agency hopes to begin work to remove the Gorge Dam in the spring of 2024. Park officials say the park will need to be closed for three to four years while work is being done.
  • Cleanup of the Cuyahoga River is ongoing in Summit County after a crash on Route 8 sparked a fire Tuesday. Fuel spilled from a gas tanker during the crash traveled through a combined sewer overflow, caught fire, and briefly traveled into the river, according to Summit Metro Parks Marketing and Public Relations Manager Lindsay Smith. The fire was extinguished quickly, Smith said, but cleanup and monitoring will continue through the rest of this week. Containment booms are being used to prevent spread of any fuel in the river.
