City of Cleveland Traffic Advisory

East 18th Street Rehabilitation Project

Beginning Wednesday, September 22, 2021, The City of Cleveland will begin the East 18th Street Rehabilitation Project from East 14th Street to Lakeside Avenue.

Two-way traffic will be maintained all the times throughout the work limits.

Access at all intersections and driveways will be maintained, but on-street parking will not be permitted.

Electronic message boards will be placed on either end of the construction prior to the week of September 20, 2021 informing the public of the impending construction work.  

The project includes resurfacing of approximately 0.94 miles of East 18th Street from East 14th Street to Lakeside Avenue. Work will include milling and replacement of the existing asphalt, base repairs, utility casting adjustments, ADA compliant ramps, and pavement markings throughout the project length. New water mains will be installed from Central Avenue to Carnegie Avenue and from Payne Avenue to Superior Avenue with new connections.  Bike lanes will be installed on both sides of the street from Euclid Avenue to Lakeside Avenue.

The work on this project will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The project will be completed in August 2022.

Neighborhood Street Improvements in Ward 8

On September 18, 2021 the City of Cleveland’s Residential Resurfacing will begin in Ward 8. 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 October 2021:

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.

2021 Road Resurfacing Project Description:

  • This work represents an investment of $12 million in the City’s Residential Roadways.
  • With the completion of the Pavement Management Study in 2017 and the continued evaluation of the City’s roadway network, the City has a grading system that allows streets in the greatest need of resurfacing to be selected for repair. The City is using the ‘worst first’ approaches for road resurfacing.
  • The City estimates it will resurface approximately 76 residential streets in 2021.
  • The City will also be using the ‘fix-it-first” approach to restore a high pavement condition rating to streets that are fair condition.
  • The City estimates it will employ this method on 11 residential streets.
