PIR 709 – W. 14 & Branch
(City of Cleveland Ward 3)
Traffic revision begins Monday May 22 and remains in effect through Friday, May 26
Expect additional traffic notices as work progresses

CLEVELAND – Pipeline infrastructure road closure for restoration will begin on Monday, May 22, 2017, weather permitting, and includes work on the following streets:

  • W. 15 – Between Howard Avenue & Starkweather Avenue
  • W. 15 – Between Starkweather Avenue & Auburn Avenue

The planned sequence is:

Day 1: the contractor will start with the section between Howard Avenue and Starkweather Avenue. This will include filling the trench and overcut with a concrete base to within 3” of the surface, then plating the road overnight.

Day 2: Installing the surface asphalt in the Howard/Starkweather section and begin installing the concrete in the Starkweather/Auburn section.

Day 3: Installing the surface asphalt in the Starkweather/Auburn section.

Day4: Joint sealing and miscellaneous clean-up.

Both sections will be closed during working hours but reopened each night after working hours (4-5 p.m.). The existing trench will be plated as they progress down each section to allow for limited access if needed.

Dominion will mail out notices and/or make an advance automated call to all of the residents affected prior to the work starting.

Dominion or their contractor is responsible for notification to all public and emergency services (i.e. waste removal, police, fire, EMS, and school transportation).

Xtreme Elements (the restoration contractor completing the work) will contact the Tremont Block Club to assist with sending emails to the residents as well and as they have done on similar projects in the area.

Area Wide Protective will provide all signage and will actively manage the work zones during construction. A LEO (Law enforcement Officer) will be present to direct traffic at all signalized intersections.

Contact Dennis Scheid - Hill International at 216-701-2319 with questions/comments.

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.
