Construction started in March within the Cedar Fairmount Business District for a multitude of improvements starting with the replacement of the natural gas pipelines by Dominion East Ohio Gas. The gas line replacement should be completed in July, as well as Phase 1 of the resurfacing of Cedar Road from Taylor to Norfolk. The total project is expected to cost almost $4 Million.
Phase 2 of the Cedar Road Resurfacing/Cedar Fairmount Streetscape project from Norfolk to the intersection of Cedar and Euclid Heights Blvd. is predicted to begin sometime in July. This consists of road resurfacing and new ADA Compliant Curb Ramps, sidewalks, and sidewalk amenities from Fairmount Boulevard to Euclid Heights Boulevard, including new trees, removal of unused electric poles, new flower planters, benches, trash cans, and bike racks. A multi-use pedestrian and bicycle path is almost complete along the Cedar Glen Parkway from Euclid Heights Boulevard to Ambleside Drive in Cleveland. The time table for Phase 2 is approximately 6 – 8 weeks.
