University Circle Uptown Mobility Improvements

Monday, July 15, 2019

CLEVELAND – On July 22, 2019, as part of the implementation of one of the City’s Transportation for Livable Communities Initiatives (TLCI), construction will begin for pedestrian, bicycle and transit facilities at various locations in University Circle. All vehicular traffic will be maintained, but construction work zones will be required at some locations where flaggers, barrels, cones and/or barricades will be used to control vehicular traffic. Pedestrians will be flagged around active work areas and since the work area is mobile, minimal pedestrian impact is expected.

The work includes installation of bicycle and pedestrian pavement markings and signage along Euclid Avenue, Mayfield Avenue, Ford Drive and East 115th Street; installation of Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at four pedestrian crossings (Euclid Avenue & East 117th Street, Juniper Road & Bellflower Court, Ford Drive & Bellflower Court and Mayfield Avenue & Uptown Avenue), and installation of CircleLink bus stop signage along the GreenLink and BlueLink routes.

Project construction is administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation, and is scheduled to be complete by August 31, 2019. Work is currently scheduled to occur on Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Questions? Contact the Ohio Department of Transportation District 12 Public Information Office at D12.Public.Information@dot.ohio.gov, 216-584-2005 or 216-584-2007.

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.
