Fairfield Road to Carter Road – ROAD CLOSURE

(2 to 3 month closure anticipated)

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Scranton Road will be closed while receiving several upgrades and improvements between Fairfield Road and Carter Road beginning February 8, 2017, weather permitting, with the exception of local traffic. Local traffic ONLY will be maintained at all times. Local businesses north of the Lorain-Carnegie overpass will utilize Carter Road to access Scranton Road. Local businesses south of the Lorain Carnegie overpass will utilize the Train Avenue and Fairfield Road intersections at Scranton for access.

Motorists will need to be alert for lane shifts and barrels used to direct traffic. This closure is anticipated to last from two to three months. A public notification will be provided when the road closure is lifted.

The scope of this project includes: new concrete pavement, concrete drive aprons, curbs and walks for Scranton Road (Fairfield Road to Carter Road) and on Carter Road (from Columbus Road to Scranton Road); resurfacing of the Columbus/Carter intersection; new drainage facilities for both Scranton Road and Carter Road;  installation of ADA compliant curb ramps at all intersections; miscellaneous water works such as hydrant relocations; relocation of utility poles; new striping and signs; and the addition of exclusive bike lanes and parking lanes on Scranton Road.

Should there be any questions or comments about this project please contact the City’s Chief Construction Inspector, Ms. Traci Hartnett-Mercado at (216) 244-5636.

Please Note: Road construction invariably presents hazards to the public.  We urge all travelers to use caution in the construction zones. Your safety and the safety of our workers are our greatest concern.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this important public improvement project.
