Cleveland City Hall to hold virtual public presentation on Lorain Ave. rehabilitation
Cleveland City Hall is inviting local Clevelanders to partake in a Virtual Public Information Presentation regarding the Lorain Avenue Rehabilitation and Bicycle Facilities from May 24 to June 18, 2021.
This presentation will include early construction cost estimations and conceptual plans for bicycle facilities along Lorain Avenue, from West 65th St. to West 20th St. Locals can visit www.LivingLorainCycling.com during the scheduled dates to participate in the virtual presentation.
Mayor Frank G. Jackson, Ward 3 Councilman Kerry McCormack, Ward 15 Councilwoman Jenny Spencer, the Mayor’s Office of Capital Projects, and the Division of Engineering and Construction will present the rehabilitation plan.
Furthermore, public feedbacks are requested to select the type of bicycle facilities to be put in the road reconstruction project. Clevelanders can choose to comment on several aspects, including sidewalk-level cycle-track from W. 44th to W. 20th, sidewalk-level multi-purpose trail, and street-level dedicated bike lanes and combinations.
In addition to the bicycle track project, the city will also conduct several other reconstructions throughout Lorain Avenue, including pavement repair or replacement, new asphalt surface course, drainage and utility improvements and replacements, and new walks and curb ramps to make pedestrian walkways compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The construction schedule can change depending on the selected bicycle facility due to the additional construction funding needed for some options. Construction cost estimates can also shift depending on its type.
The City of Cleveland devises the project to increase the safety and ease of access for Loraine Avenue road users.
