Wireless Carriers Begin Small Cell Facilities Construction Citywide

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

CLEVELAND – Construction of small cell facilities is underway this week as part of a wireless carrier program to provide 5G Wireless Service throughout Cleveland. Carriers will construct a network of newly installed utility poles at multiple city locations that carry the 5G wireless equipment. In some locations, equipment may be mounted on existing utility poles. The new utility poles will be placed in tree lawn areas or on existing sidewalks, providing adequate room for pedestrian access.

A list of locations by Ward, current as of Aug. 6, 2019, is available for reference. Additional locations are anticipated and will be added as the City is notified by the carriers.

During the work, traffic and pedestrian access may be temporarily restricted or delayed due to the contractor’s operations. Two-way traffic will be maintained. Pedestrian traffic may be limited to one side of the street. Motorists should be alert for traffic signage and flaggers who will direct traffic at the designated work sites.
