Lakeshore Boulevard Public Meeting
Date: Apr 28, 2016
The City of Cleveland wants to calm traffic and improve Lakeshore Blvd for residents.
Lakeshore Boulevard is currently configured for traffic volumes that simply do not exist. This excess capacity promotes speeding at the cost of safety, neighborhood connectivity, pedestrian utility, retail performance, and multimodal usage. The City of Cleveland has proposed a “road diet” that will calm traffic and reduce crashes without impeding the flow of cars. Such configurations have been in use for over three decades, and are endorsed by the Federal Highway Safety Administration as an effective means of improving the safety and livability of our neighborhoods.
Join us to learn more and share your thoughts on the proposed new configuration. Visit safety.fhwa.dot.gov/road_diets/ to learn more about why road diets are a good, context sensitive solution to improving our local roads.
