(Cleveland) - The Cuyahoga County Department of Public Works announces that East 9th Street, from Euclid Avenue to Prospect Avenue, will re-open by 3:00 p.m. today. That's two days ahead of schedule.
Bonnie Teeuwen, director of public works tells Newsradio WTAM 1100, work will continue on East 9th Street from Euclid Avenue to North Marginal Road with temporary lane closures to facilitate the required utility casting adjustments and curb ramp installations.
She says a minimum of two lanes in each direction will be maintained during rush hour. Due to the heavy traffic volumes that utilize East 9th Street, traffic delays are expected.
It is strongly suggested that those planning to travel along East 9th Street allow additional time to reach their downtown destination.
As work progresses, Teeuwen says please be patient when dealing with the inconveniences of construction, and she urges patience and caution when traveling within this construction zone.
