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.

Resurfacing in Ward 3

Road Work in 2018

Highlights about this year’s road work include:

  • 2018 street resurfacing began on April 16. Resurfacing 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.
  • With the completion of the Pavement Management Study last year the City has a graded system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected. The City is using the worst first approach to road resurfacing.
  • The City projects it will resurface 120 residential streets this year.
  • The City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating using the crack sealing program.
