City of Cleveland Launches Street Repair Web Application

The City of Cleveland Department of Public Works and the Mayor’s Office of Capital Projects has launched a new web-based, geographic information system (GIS) application that will allow visitors to track the status of street repair and resurfacing in the City of Cleveland. You may view the application titled “RoadRx: The Prescription to Repair Cleveland’s Roads” here: http://www.clevelandgis.org/apps/RoadRx/

“Road resurfacing and pothole repair are annual issues in the City of Cleveland that cause stress for many motorists and residents,” said Chief Operating Officer Darnell Brown. “This new tool will allow users to see where street repair crews are currently working and where they will be in the future. I believe this new capability will provide greater clarity into the city’s systematic approach to street repair and address some of the more common questions of motorist and residents.”

The GIS map is organized according to the city’s seventeen Wards and is capable of being broken down by subsection. Users will are able to see if repairs on a street or subsection are completed, in progress, or date of expected completion. In addition to the planned repairs, both planned and completed issue 1 street resurfacing projects will be viewable. Data for the application is updated on a weekly basis. Street repairs and resurfacing may be delayed or changed due to weather, funding, or other conditions. Please report emergency street repairs to 216.664.2510.
