City of Cleveland officials will be available on site at 9:30 am to answer any questions on the East 22nd Street rehabilitation project or the City’s street resurfacing program.

East 22nd Street between Orange Avenue and Euclid Avenue will undergo a complete rehabilitation to provide for the more efficient movement of pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles. This work will includes reconstruction of existing curb and walk, removal and replacement of existing asphalt pavement, and removal and replacement of existing driveways.

ADA Compliant curb ramps will be constructed at all intersections. The project will also install new drainage facilities. Streetscape and pedestrian amenities are proposed, including new tree plantings, vegetated strips between the curb and sidewalk and within the center median, street lighting, benches, bike racks and decorative crosswalks. These traffic restrictions are scheduled to be in place until November 2015. This project is scheduled for completion by May 2016.
