Clark Avenue Improvements and Upgrades

Friday, August 18, 2017

CLEVELAND – On Tuesday, August 22, 2017, as a part of the ongoing road improvements and upgrades along Clark Avenue, between Lorain Avenue and West 41st Street, a new traffic pattern will be implemented on Clark Avenue.

Clark Avenue eastbound traffic will be maintained, from Lorain to West 41th Street. Westbound traffic will be detoured onto West 41th Street north to Lorain Avenue. We ask that motorists remain alert for lane shifts. Signs, barricades and orange drums will be used to indicate traffic flow and will remain in effect until November, 2017.

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 will also be added or replaced.

The project is scheduled for completion in December 2018.

For questions, please contact the City of Cleveland Chief Inspector, Traci Hartnett-Mercado at 216-244-5636.

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.
