Work Zone Rehabilitation: Independence Road to Broadway Avenue

CLEVELAND – On Monday, March 21, weather permitting, the Fleet Avenue contractor will revise the work zone from East 49th Street to Broadway Avenue along Fleet Avenue. One lane of eastbound traffic will be maintained only in the southern lane. The northern lanes will be closed to traffic. All westbound Fleet traffic will be detoured east on Fleet Avenue, then south on East 71st Street, then west on Harvard Avenue, and then north on Washington Park Boulevard.

Advance notice signs will be posted to advise Fleet Avenue traffic of construction. Access to all driveways will be maintained during this phase of the project. This Fleet Avenue Rehabilitation Project will reconstruct 1.03 miles of Fleet Avenue including pavement replacement between Independence Road to East 65th Street and resurface Fleet Avenue from East 65th Street to Broadway Avenue. The project construction will include streetscape improvements and a NEORSD storm-water facility. The entire project is scheduled for completion by July 2016.
