City of Cleveland Traffic Advisory for Wards 5 & 9

Pipeline Infrastructure Replacement Project for Ward 9

On Monday October 11, 2021, Dominion Energy Ohio’s gas pipeline infrastructure replacement project will begin on the following street:

  • East 98th Street  – From Parkgate Avenue to Westchester Avenue
  • East 99th Street – From North Boulevard to South Boulevard
  • Westchester Avenue – From East 99th Street to East 99th Place
  • South Boulevard – North side from East 98th Street to East 99th Street
  • East 98th Place – From North Boulevard to East 98th Street
  • East 99th Place – From Westchester Avenue to 1217 East 99th Place

The improvements include replacing an underground vault and replacing the old steel mainline with a new plastic mainline in the sidewalk area.  A work zone will be established which will allow two-way traffic with traffic control personnel present to help direct traffic flow.  Access to adjacent driveways will be maintained throughout construction.  All work zones will be removed at the end of each work day.  The work on the project will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This project is scheduled for completion in December 2021.  Should the weather not allow for permanent restoration to the sidewalk, a temporary 2” thick concrete sidewalk will be installed for pedestrian traffic.  A concrete cap will be placed on all road crossings until permanent concrete restorations can be completed in the spring.

Neighborhood Street Improvements for Ward 5

On Monday, October 6, 2021, weather permitting, the City of Cleveland’s Residential Resurfacing will continue in Ward 5. Advance notice signs will be posted to advise the public of road improvements.  The following street will be resurfaced and completed by the end of October 2021:

  • East 22nd Street (Payne CT to Payne Avenue)

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.

*Editor’s Note: Road construction invariably presents hazards to the public. All travelers are urged to use caution in construction zones. Public safety and the safety of workers is a top priority.
