Your road could get some much-needed attention soon. The City of Cleveland announced a plan, Tuesday, to fix crumbling streets from east to west.
The city hired a company called Michael Baker International to do a pavement management survey of every road in Cleveland. The company began the survey in spring of 2016. It graded each road from A through F. About 40 percent of local streets failed or got a D. Ward 2 scored the lowest, with the most Fs. But there’s good news for areas with poor pavement. The company recommended a “worst first” approach, fixing every F street first.
The city says it will cost $30 million just to repair all of the failing roads. After it finishes that aspect, it’ll change gears and work on a variety of roads – as needed. The whole project is expected to last 20 years and cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
