TRAFFIC NOTICE: Sewer Project to Close Two Lanes on Lake Shore Boulevard

Construction of new sewers will impact eastbound and westbound traffic on Lake Shore Blvd. near Triangle Park.

Vehicular traffic along Lake Shore Boulevard will be restricted to one lane in each direction beginning today, Nov. 19, 2013.  This lane closure will occur between the Louis Stokes Bridge (immediately east of East 174 St. near Triangle Park) and Marcella Rd.  This closure is for construction of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s Lake Shore Boulevard Relief Sewer, a new sewer designed to reduce basement and street flooding in the area.

Construction is expected to continue for approximately one year. See map.

As part of the sewer project, construction crews will be excavating a large access shaft within Lake Shore Blvd.  This access shaft will be used to connect the new relief sewer to the Euclid Creek Tunnel beneath Triangle Park near East 174 St.

Prior to the closure, the Sewer District re-paved the two southernmost lanes of Lake Shore Blvd. in anticipation of increased traffic flows to that portion of the road.
