Street improvement projects in 2018
(City of Cleveland – Ward 13)

CLEVELAND – A City of Cleveland resurfacing project will begin Wednesday September 12, 2018 in Ward 13. Advance notice signs will be posted to advise the public of road improvements.  The following project will be resurfaced and completed by the end of September 2018:

    • Park Drive (Fulton to Fulton Parkway)

One lane of traffic will be maintained for local traffic for the duration of this project and no detours are expected. Access to all businesses, residences and side streets will be maintained during construction. Work will take place Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. On-street parking will not be allowed during construction.

2018 Road Resurfacing Projects: 

Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, allows the City to embark on more street improvement projects in 2017 and 2018 than previous years. Projects span all City neighborhoods and wards.

Highlights about this year’s road work:

    • Street resurfacing will began April 25 and will continue through the summer, weather permitting.
    • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting.  The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
    • 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.
    • The City projects it will resurface 120 proposed streets this year.
    • The City is also investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high condition rating.  

For questions, contact the City’s Administrative Manager, Mrs. 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.
