ICYMI: Street Resurfacing Projects Begin This Week

CW_4968_2014 (1).jpgThis week, the City of Cleveland began resurfacing projects in Ward 7 and Ward 15. Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, allows the City of Cleveland to embark on more street improvement projects in 2018 than previous years. Projects span all city neighborhoods and wards.

Advance notice signs will be posted to advise the public of road improvements. The following streets will be resurfaced and completed by the end of June 2018:

  • West 116th Street (Clifton Boulevard – Lake Avenue)
  • West 54th Street (Detroit Avenue – Stone Avenue)
  • West 71st Street (Wakefield Avenue – Franklin Boulevard)
  • West 80th Street (Detroit Avenue – Lake Avenue)
  • West 76th Street (Lawn Avenue – Madison Avenue)
  • West 96th Street (Landon Avenue – Madison Avenue)
  • West 104th Street (Clifton Boulevard – Lake Avenue)

Advance notice signs will be posted to advise the public of the following road improvements. These streets will be resurfaced and completed by the end of July 2018:

  • East 89th Street (Chester Avenue – Hough Avenue)
  • East 69th Street (Chester Avenue – Hough Avenue)
  • Linwood Avenue (East 70th Street– East 85th Street)
  • East 66th Street (Linwood Avenue – Lawnview Avenue)
  • Melrose Avenue (East 79th Street – East 82nd Street)
  • East 94th Street (Crawford Road – Ansel Avenue)
  • Schaffer Avenue (Addison Avenue – East 71st Street)

One lane of traffic will be maintained for local traffic for the duration of each project and no detours are expected. Access to all businesses, residences and side streets will be maintained during construction. On-street parking will not be allowed during construction.

Highlights about this year’s road work include:

  • Street resurfacing work for 2018 begins on April 16th. Resurfacing will be performed in Wards 15 and 7, and will continue through the summer.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting. The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from eight to an average of 10 crews daily as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • Follow our blog for a daily list of road updates at clecityhall.com.
  • With the completion of the Pavement Management Study last year the City of Cleveland has a graded system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected.
    The City of Cleveland is using the worst first approach to road resurfacing.
  • The city projects it will resurface 120 residential streets this year.
  • We are also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to
    extend roadways’ high condition rating using the crack sealing program.
