Expect additional traffic notices as improvements continue

CLEVELAND – On Monday, March 12, 2018, as a part of the ongoing road improvements and upgrades along Clark Avenue, a new traffic pattern will be implemented. Clark Avenue eastbound traffic will be maintained, from West 65th Street to West 41st Street. Westbound traffic will be detoured on to West 41st Street north to Lorain Avenue west, to West 65th Street south. 

We ask that motorists remain alert for lane shifts. Signs, barricades and orange drums will be used to indicate the direction of traffic. This detour is to remain in effect until the completion of the project in November 2018. 

This project extends along a 1.75 mile section of Clark Avenue between Lorain Avenue and West 41st Street. The improvements include a new asphalt surface, pavement base, curb, sidewalk and drive apron repairs, ADA compliant ramps and new catch basins. Where necessary, new traffic signals, signs and pavement markings, including bike lanes/sharrows and water line replacement will be added or upgraded. The work will take place during daytime hours from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Please contact the City of Cleveland Chief Inspector, Traci Hartnett Mercado, with any questions at 216-857-5447. 

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.
