The City of North Olmsted has received funding from the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) and Cuyahoga County to resurface Clague Road north of Lorain Road in FY 2024. Before the resurfacing project is designed, the city is conducting a traffic and safety study of the Clague Road corridor to determine if additional improvements are warranted to address traffic congestion and safety. The study area is Clague Road between Lorain Road and the northern corporation limit.
The study involves a detailed crash analysis and a transportation analysis looking at traffic counts, peak hour volumes, intersection capacities and turn lane assessments. The consultant will review pedestrian accommodations and connectivity along the Clague Road corridor, specifically assessing the mid-block crossing at Clague Park. The study will consider the potential for safety improvement of the corridor and evaluate various solutions to include an economic analysis of the cost-benefit of proposed alternatives.
One deliverable of this process will be a Safety Study Report that will be used as the basis for an application to the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for potential funding of proposed improvements.
The city engaged the engineering firm Mott MacDonald to perform the study, which kicked off in June 2020.
To learn more about the study and share your input, join our virtual public information session on Wednesday, August 5 at 5:30 p.m. A brief presentation will be made by Mott MacDonald, and after the presentation, you will have the opportunity to provide feedback in an online survey.
