BIKE AND PED

During 2019, Lake Avenue from Clifton Boulevard to Detroit Avenue was studied by the City of Cleveland with the goal of accomplishing the following objectives: 

  • IMPROVE SAFETY FOR NON-VEHICULAR USERS ALONG LAKE AVENUE

  • IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES FOR AESTHETIC IMPROVEMENTS

  • PROVIDE A COMMUNITY VISION FOR EQUITABLE AND INCLUSIVE FUTURE LAND-USE & DEVELOPMENT

  • RE-ENVISION THE CORRIDOR’S IDENTITY

This study recommended several infrastructure improvements to meet these goals.  This project will improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities at various locations long the corridor. Each will be described in detail below.

WEST 110TH STREET

At the West 110th Street intersection the existing painted traffic island will be be replaced with a median.  The median will provide protection to pedestrians crossing the road, proving them a safe location in the center of the road to safely complete the crossing.  The 50' long and 11' wide median will include decorative stamped concrete end treatments and, dependent on public comments and maintainability, a variety of shrubs and small trees. 

LAKE AVENUE (CLIFTON BOULEVARD TO VIKING COURT)

Along Lake Avenue, from Clifton Boulevard to Viking Court, a planted median will be installed.  This median will serve as an end cap to this section of the corridor and compliment the decorative crosswalks previously installed at the Lake Avenue/Clifton Boulevard intersection.  This median is 165' in length and 11' wide and will include decorative stamped concrete end treatments and, dependent on public comments and maintainability, a variety of shrubs and small trees. 

WEST 85TH STREET

At the West 85th Street intersection the existing painted traffic island will be be replaced with a planted median.  The median will provide protection to pedestrians crossing the road, proving them a safe location in the center of the road to safely complete the crossing.  These medians are 50' in length and 11' wide and will include decorative stamped concrete end treatments and, dependent on public comments and maintainability, a variety of shrubs and small trees. 

WEST 78TH STREET

At the West 78th Street intersection the existing painted traffic island will be be replaced with a planted median.  The median will provide protection to pedestrians crossing the road, proving them a safe location in the center of the road to safely complete the crossing.  These medians are 50' in length and 11' wide and will include decorative stamped concrete end treatments and, dependent on public comments and maintainability, a variety of shrubs and small trees.
