Capital improvements underway to West Side Market restrooms

Today, renovation crews began work on the south side restrooms at the City of Cleveland’s historic West Side Market. While these improvements are being made, the Market’s north side restrooms will remain open to the public. Signs are posted to help assist visitors and customers locate the north side restrooms.


This project will be a complete remodeling of the south side bathrooms and include replacement of underground piping, electrical switchgears, installment of sewage ejection pumps and major grease interceptors, re-roofing, lighting and electrical upgrades, masonry repairs, and door replacements.

These improvements are being made to increase the overall visitor experience at the West Side Market and maintain its status as the premiere public market in the country.

Due to the nature of the work and in an effort to have the least disruption to the Market, the duration for this improvement project is approximately six months. The total cost of the project is $1,466,762.00 and the contractor will be R.W. Clark Company. The contractor will be subject to the Fannie M. Lewis Cleveland Resident Employment Law.
