The City is finalizing the design of the second phase of the Citywide Traffic Signal Upgrade Project. The next phase will involve the remaining traffic signals that were not addressed in the first phase that is now being finalized. These signals are primarily located along Butternut Ridge Road, Great Northern Boulevard, Brookpark Road, Country Club Boulevard and Columbia Road. The proposed work should not restrict access to properties or block traffic lanes during peak periods. The project is scheduled for construction in 2020 and is funded through the Federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality program at 80% of the $3.9 million budget. The City seeks comments from the public about the social, environmental and economic impacts of this proposed project. Submit comments by November 21, 2018, to Kevin Westbrooks, PE, PTOE at GPD Group, 5595 Transportation Blvd, Suite 100, Garfield Heights, OH 44125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
During construction, Mackenzie Road will be closed from 7:00am until 6:00pm except for local traffic only. South bound traffic will be detoured to Burns Road to Southern Avenue or Fitch Road to Elizabeth/Terrace depending on location of work area. North bound traffic will be detoured to Terrace/Elizabeth to Fitch Road. Emergency vehicles, school buses, mail and delivery will have access to Mackenzie Road at all times.
