East 93rd Street Resurfacing

Work will commence on the west side of the roadway while one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction using the east side of the roadway. Access to all adjacent driveways will be maintained.
This project will reconstruct 0.58 miles of East 93rd Street between Union Avenue and Kinsman Road. The work will include pavement reconstruction and resurfacing, curb, sidewalk and driveway repairs. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by September 30, 2016.

East Blvd Lane Closure

Beginning Thursday, April 14, east bound traffic on East Blvd. between MLK Blvd. & Wade Oval Dr. will be closed through April 21. West bound traffic will be open one way from Wade Oval Dr. to MLK Blvd.

Red Line Schedule Adjustment

Beginning Monday, February 15, 2016, the westbound Red Line schedule will be adjusted to account for the slow zone between W 25 and W 65. As a result, the first two westbound trips each day will depart Tower City for the Airport at 3:19am and 3:29am.
All other westbound trips will arrive at the Airport 3 minutes later than the time shown on the PDF timetable dated September 8, 2015.

Beginning on or about, Wednesday, March 2, Carnegie Avenue will be restricted to one lane in each direction between East 100th Street and East 107th Street through mid to late-March in order to perform water line work.

New Pedestrian Crossing at Carnegie and MLK
On Tuesday, September 22, the Division of Streets will begin redesign work on the Carnegie Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive intersection. Work on the intersection will begin today (September 22) and is expected to be finalized by Wednesday (September 23) morning.

Improvements to the intersection will include installation of a new crosswalk, street crossing signals, and a traffic island that will provide a shortened crossing and allow for pedestrians to use the new crosswalk on the north side of the intersection. In addition to the intersection enhancements, westbound traffic from Cedar Hill to Carnegie Avenue will be two through lanes and one turn lane onto Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

Moving Greater University Circle Transportation & Mobility Study
UCI and its partners at the City of Cleveland and NOACA recently completed the Moving Greater University Circle Transportation & Mobility Study. The project assessed areas of need and opportunity in our transportation system and identified a series of short and long-term strategies for effective transportation management. Additional work is now under way to develop an implementation plan to carry these recommendations forward.  For more information, visit the project page here.  

Car and Bike Share programs Expand in University Circle
Zipcar car sharing and Zagster bike sharing are two new options to help you move around University Circle and the surrounding area. Membership to the services is available to the public and discounts are available to local businesses and non-profits. Zipcars are currently located a 10831 Magnolia Drive and the Ford Road parking garage and are available for reservation by the hour or by the day. Zagster bikes are available at the Courtyard Hotel off of Cornell Road and at the Cleveland Museum of Art and are available by the hour.

Little Italy – University Circle Rapid Station
The long-awaited Red Line Rapid Station in the historic Little Italy neighborhood opens at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 11 -- just a few days before thousands of people descend on the area for the Feast of the Assumption. The station is just a four-minute walk from Holy Rosary Church -- the focus of much of the celebration. The festival is the busiest time of the year for Little Italy, and thousands of people will no longer have to vie for the limited parking in that area.

RTA broke ground on the new station, located on Mayfield Rd. in October 2013. The new station will replace the existing E. 120th Street Station. The $17.5 million station features a single platform headhouse and entrance plaza, complying with current ADA requirements, a heavy-duty elevator and stairway from the street level up to the platform and waiting areas, and several public art components that will both illuminate the station and better blend the station with the adjacent neighborhoods.  The station will provide more direct connections to the Little Italy business district and the rapidly developing Uptown neighborhood.
RTA Completes Red Line / HealthLine Extension Study
RTA has completed a study of a possible extension of the HealthLine and the Red Line. A public meeting to discuss the findings and recommendations of that study will be held from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Collinwood Recreation Center, 16300 Lakeshore Blvd. Please plan to attend. Your feedback is important.

RTA is exploring options to extend the Red Line and/or HealthLine east into Euclid, closer to the Lake County line. RTA and their consultant team began a study in fall 2013 and are currently working with project partners to select a preferred alternative.   For more information on the study and public engagement opportunities, visit
