Following Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s historic fourth inauguration on Jan. 2, 2018 he headed to neighborhoods around the City of Cleveland to meet with residents and take their questions.
The Mayor visited three Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority residences on Tuesday: Lakeview Tower at Washington Avenue and West 28th Street, Bohn Tower at East 13th Street and Superior Avenue and Wilson Tower at East 55th Street and Chester Avenue. These visits are part of several planned for the Mayor over the next few months.

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.
- Leaf pick-up service has also been reactivated in designated high leaf generation areas. View maps and a list of locations here.
Updates will be posted Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
