City of Cleveland Pilot Tree Damaged Sidewalk (TDS) Repair Program for Brick Streets

Friday, October 4, 2019

CLEVELAND – On Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019 sidewalk repair work begins as part of the City of Cleveland’s Pilot Tree Damaged Sidewalk (TDS) Program for Brick Streets on West 116th Street between Highland Road and Bellaire Road in Ward 11. 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. The City asks motorists to be alert for traffic signs and flaggers directing traffic at the tree damaged sidewalk repair work locations. Pedestrians are also asked to be alert as sidewalks will be closed while repairs are completed.

This project repairs sidewalk locations on West 116th Street streets which have been damaged by tree roots. The improvement includes sidewalk removal and replacement, root pruning or the removal of trees if necessary. If a tree is removed, it will be replaced by a new tree. The work on sidewalks, tree removal and replacement is at no charge to resident.
