City Announces Neighborhood Street Improvements

Friday, July 19, 2019

CLEVELAND – Improvements to City of Cleveland streets will begin on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, 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 beginning of September 2019:

  • Grovewood Avenue (East 164th Street to East 174th Street)
  • Huntmere Avenue (Lakeshore Boulevard to East 161st Street)
  • Cornwall Road (Canterbury Avenue to East 185th Street)
  • East 150th Street (Lakeshore Boulevard to Shore Acres Drive)

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.

2019 Road Resurfacing Projects:

Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards.

Highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began the week of April 15th and will continue through the summer, weather permitting.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study 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.
  • City projects it will resurface approximately 110 proposed streets this year.
  • City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating.

Questions? Please contact the City’s Administrative Manager, Ms. Cherita Anglen at (216) 420-7605.

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 our workers is a top priority.
