Temporary Road Closure Announced for Euclid Ave. Beginning Sept. 11

Euclid Avenue will temporarily close to east and west bound traffic September 11-17, 2017. The closure extends from East 6th Street to East Roadway. It allows a crane to be placed atop a parking garage at 515 Euclid Avenue.

September 11-17:

Local traffic will have access to Euclid Avenue from East 3rd Street north traveling east bound on Euclid to East 4th Street to access the residential parking garage on East 4th Street. Access will be allowed for traffic exiting the residential garage on 4th Street to Euclid west bound to East Roadway at Public Square.

Traffic will not be allowed access onto Euclid from Public Square and no traffic will be allowed access west bound beyond East 6th Street on Euclid Avenue during this temporary closure. All traffic traveling west bound on Euclid Avenue from East 9th Street will be detoured onto East 6th Street.

Pedestrians on the north side of Euclid Avenue must cross at East 6th Street to the south side of Euclid Avenue, and may cross back to the north side of Euclid Avenue at East 4th Street.

RTA will publish a schedule to divert bus traffic around Euclid from East 9th to Public Square during the temporary closure as well.

After September 17:

Euclid Avenue will reopen to two way traffic beginning September 18. East bound traffic will observe the normal traffic flow. One lane will remain open for all traffic traveling west bound on Euclid Avenue between East 6th street and East 4th street.

Changes to RTA Routes

RTA service (HealthLine, E-Line, and C-Line) that would normally use Euclid will instead use Prospect between Ontario and E. 9th.

HealthLine vehicle heading east will pick up at the casino instead of the HealthLine station.  That way, they can turn right on Ontario.

The project is scheduled for completion in February 2019. Expect additional traffic notices as work progresses.

Contact Andrew Cross for project-related questions at 216-664-3197.

Mayor Opposes Federal Decision to Rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival Program

Mayor Frank G. Jackson today released a statement in opposition of the federal decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program:

“I stand in opposition to rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, recognizing that the City of Cleveland thrives on the diversity of its people. Nearly 800,000 young people – including many in the City of Cleveland – may be negatively impacted. I encourage Clevelanders who may fear the loss of citizenship to become familiar with their rights – such as knowing what to do if an immigration officer comes to your door, what to do

in the event of a raid and knowing the rights of students in schools. America is a nation of immigrants and their descendants. To retroactively change its legal framework to keep new immigrants from enjoying the successes previous generations of immigrants and their descendants have enjoyed does not represent our values. All people are welcome here in the City of Cleveland.”

Cleveland Road Work News: September 5, 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.
