West 143rd Street Resurfacing Improvements

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

CLEVELAND – On Friday, Sept. 20, 2019, the City of Cleveland will begin resurfacing West 143rd Street Resurfacing Project from Courtland to Lakota Avenue. Advance notice signs will be posted to advise the public of road improvements.

One lane 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. The work is estimated to be complete in Oct. 2019.

The improvements include asphalt resurfacing and installation of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) –compliant ramps. The work will take place during daytime hours Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

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.
  • Since the completion of the Pavement Management Study in 2017, the City now 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 approximately 110 proposed streets this year.
  • The City is investing in preventive maintenance on recently resurfaced streets to extend roadways’ high-condition rating.

Contact the City’s Administrative Manager, Ms. Cherita Anglen at (216) 420-7605 with questions.

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.
