Expect additional traffic notices as work progresses

CLEVELAND – On August 11, 2017 street improvement will continue as traffic switches to the west side of East 55th Street from Broadway Avenue to Bower Avenue to perform work on the east side of the street. Two lanes of traffic – one lane north and one lane south – will be maintained from Broadway Avenue to Truscon Avenue. Three lanes of traffic – two lanes north and one lane south – will be maintained from Truscon Avenue to Bower Avenue. Motorists should be alert for lane shifts and barrels used to direct traffic. This change will remain in place until October 2017. 

Access to all businesses, residences and side streets will be maintained during construction.  On-street parking will not be allowed during this phase of the project.  Advance notice signs will be posted to remind East 55th Street traffic of construction activities.

The East 55th Street Improvement Project is being administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation and includes asphalt roadway removal and replacement. The project is scheduled for completion by October 2018.

Contact the Ohio DOT Project Manager, Mr. Aaron Saplak, PE at (216) 312-0501 with any questions.

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.
