Cleveland Division of Police

Today, the men and women of the Cleveland Division of Police and the Ohio State Patrol came together to honor fallen Cleveland Police Officer David J. Fahey, Jr. and Ohio State Patrol Trooper Kenny Velez in a ceremony dedicating a section of I-90 in their names.

State Representatives Thomas Patton and Daniel Ramos put forth legislation to make this great event possible.  Family and friends of these great men joined law enforcement officers from all over Northeast Ohio to pay tribute to these officers who made the ultimate sacrifice and will forever be remembered as heroes.

Both officers lost their lives on the same stretch of highway just months apart.

Thanks to State Representatives Patton and Ramos for your efforts to honor our officers.  Thanks to the families of both David and Kenny for allowing us to share this special moment.

Cleveland Road Work News: July 10, 2017

road work ahead

Thanks to Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, the City of Cleveland is embarking on more street improvement projects in 2017 than years past. Projects span all neighborhoods and wards throughout the city.

Here are some highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began on April 27, 2017 and will continue through the summer, weather permitting. The first resurfacing project took place in Ward 4 on Parkview Avenue near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting. The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study we have a graded system that allows us to select the streets that are in the greatest need of resurfacing. We are using the worst first approach to road resurfacing.
  • We are projecting to resurface 95 streets this year.
  • Thanks to Issue 32 funds, the City of Cleveland has reinstated street sweeping services.

Resurfacing today will take place in the following locations:

  • Ward 6 on Hulda-Woodhill to E 110th Street
  • Ward 5 on Lester-Gallup to Martin
