Clark Avenue Streetscape Project

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

CLEVELAND – On February 19, 2020, the City of Cleveland will begin Phase 2 of the Clark Avenue Rehabilitation Project (West 41st Street to Quigley Road). Phase 2 construction will take place between West 41st Street and West 25th Street, with work on the south side of the road.

Maintenance of traffic will be as follows:

  • One-way, eastbound traffic will be maintained on the north side of Clark Avenue between West 41st Street and West 25th Street
  • Westbound motorists will be detoured south on West 25th Street to I-71 southbound entrance ramp; then south on I-71 to Fulton Road; then north on Fulton Road to West 41st Street; then north on West 41st Street to Clark Avenue. Access at all intersections and driveways will be maintained, but on-street parking will not be permitted.

Electronic message boards were placed on either end of the Phase 2 construction on January 24, 2020 informing the public of the impending construction work.

The Clark Avenue construction is being administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation. Improvements include:

  • Milling and asphalt resurfacing
  • Full depth and partial depth pavement repairs
  • Curb and walk replacements as needed
  • Replacement of curb ramps to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • New 12-inch water main between West 41st Street and West 25th Street
  • New 8-inch water main between West 25th Street and Quigley Road
  • And new landscape/streetscape elements including banners

A traffic signal at the south leg of West 32nd Street will be removed. New mast arm traffic signals will be installed at the north leg of West 32nd Street, Scranton Avenue, West 16th Street and West 14th Street and pedestrian crossings will be updated at other intersections. New pavement markings and signage will include dedicated bike facilities and on-street parking. The work on this project will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of October 2020.
