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.

Blasting is complete at both Shaft 2 and Shaft 3

Blasting for the Euclid Creek Tunnel project at Shaft 2 (Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant near E. 140 St. and Lakeshore Blvd.) and Shaft 2 (Beulah Park near E. 156 St. and Lakeshore Blvd.) is complete.

The last blasts for Shafts 2 and 3 occurred on Nov. 4, 2013, and Oct. 31, 2013, respectively.

E. 156 St. will remain closed north of Lakeshore Blvd. for continued sewer infrastructure work related to this project.

Thank you for your continued patience during this project.  Have a wonderful weekend.

St. Clair Avenue is OPEN

On Thursday, November 7, St. Clair Ave. between East 185 St. and Neff Rd. was re-opened to traffic. The street has been re-paved and was re-opened ahead of schedule. Motorists should still use caution, however, until the lane lines are added; this should occur in the next several days, weather permitting.

St. Clair Ave. was closed in August for installation of sewer infrastructure, part of the Euclid Creek Tunnel project.

Thank you to everyone, especially the business owners within the construction zone, for their continued patience during this time.
