|The nearly $4.0 million Cedar Road resurfacing/Cedar-Fairmount streetscape is nearing completion. The first part of the project involved the resurfacing of almost 2.2 miles of Cedar Road from Taylor Road to Euclid Heights Boulevard, along with ADA compliance upgrades.

Also included in part two of the project is the multi-purpose path (a mixed use pedestrian and bicycle path) that is being constructed along the south side of Cedar Glen Parkway from Cedar Road down to Ambleside Drive in Cleveland.
The project is now in the final phase of construction with resurfacing operations occurring from Norfolk Road west to Euclid Heights Boulevard, and sidewalk construction occurring on the north side of Cedar between Norfolk and Nightown (just west of Lennox Road).
The project is being primarily funded with Federal Surface Transportation Block Grant, and Transportation Alternatives Funds with additional funding from the Ohio Public Works Commission, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The Cedar Fairmount Special Improvement District is also contributing dollars to the Streetscape Renovation portion of the project. The project has been on schedule with the completion date set at October 30th.

Red Dirt has installed the new mainline on the south side of the road from Harcourt up to Grandview.
