Scranton Road Resurfacing Improvement Project

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

CLEVELAND - On September 23, 2019, the City will begin the Scranton Road Resurfacing project (Sackett Avenue to Fairfield Avenue). The second part of this project will take place between Valentine Avenue and Clark Avenue. One-way, southbound traffic will be maintained on Scranton Road, between Valentine Avenue and Clark Avenue. Northbound motorists will be detoured west onto Metrohealth Drive; then north on West 25th Street; east on Clark Avenue and then then back to Scranton Road. This detour will remain in effect through October 2019.

Electronic message boards were placed on either end of the second phase of construction on, or about, September 18, 2019 informing the public of the impending construction work. We ask that motorists remain alert for lane shifts. Signs, barricades and orange drums will be used to indicate the direction of traffic.

The Scranton Road construction is being administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation. Improvements include milling and asphalt resurfacing, full depth and partial depth pavement repairs, curb and walk replacements as needed and the replacement of curb ramps to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. New pavement markings and signage will include dedicated bike facilities and on-street parking. The work on this project will take place Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of November 2019.

Questions? Please contact the Ohio Department of Transportation District 12 Public Information Office at, 216-584-2005 or 216-584-2007.

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.
