CLM Project Updates
Construction Scheduled to Begin in May
Traffic Pattern Change Alert at Cedar and Lee Roads
In the coming weeks, the traffic pattern at the Cedar-Lee intersection will change in order to ensure the safety of motorists, pedestrians, and construction workers as the Cedar-Lee-Meadowbrook project begins construction activities. Once implemented, the right hand eastbound lane of Cedar Road will be a right hand turn only lane (with the exception of RTA busses in order to maintain service at the existing bus station). The left hand eastbound lane will be a straight/through only lane, meaning the left hand turn northbound onto Lee Road will be prohibited during construction.
The westbound lanes on Cedar Road and traffic on Lee Road will maintain their current lane and traffic patterns (including restricted left hand turns for westbound Cedar Road traffic onto Lee Road during restricted rush hour times). Caution is still advised when traveling these unimpacted lanes as they will still be within an active construction zone.
Municipal Surface Lot #5 to Close for Construction
A portion of Municipal Lot #5 (the surface parking lot directly behind the Cedar Lee Theatre) is expected close the week of May 1 as construction fencing goes up in preparation for the start of construction of the Cedar Lee Meadowbrook project. The Cedar Lee Garage will remain open for public parking throughout construction of the project. Access to the Cedar Lee Garage will be off of Tullamore Road (via Lee Road). Please note there will not be access to the Cedar Lee Garage off of Cedar Road. In addition to public parking in the Cedar Lee Garage, Lot 34 on Cedar Road is open for parking. Free parking remains in place for both the garage and Lot 34 (as well as other City lots). Please see the map for more specifics. Additional Cedar Lee Meadowbrook updates/news will also be posted online at www.clevelandheights.gov/clm.
In addition to the Cedar Lee Meadowbrook project, the City will be replacing the stairs and accessibility ramp at the Cedar Lee Mini Park (between Cedar Lee Theatre and Boss Dog Brewery). For this reason, pedestrian access from the Cedar Lee Garage will be via Tullamore to access the Lee Road businesses until the completion of the new stairs and ramp later this year.
