ODOT Has Spring Fever as Temperatures Begin to Rise
Crews clean-up downtown interstate, ramps and interchanges
GARFIELD HEIGHTS (Tuesday, March 13, 2012) –Northeast Ohio weather is fairly unpredictable during March, however recent warm weather has given Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) maintenance crews an opportunity to begin spring cleaning operations a few weeks early.
ODOT maintenance crews from Cuyahoga, Geauga and Lake counties have joined forces to spruce up interstates, ramps and interchanges in and around downtown Cleveland. With thousands of visitors expected to attend Indians’ opening day and the Rock Hall induction ceremonies, ODOT wants the city to look its best. Crews will be picking-up litter, trimming trees, patching potholes and repairing guardrail in and around Greater Cleveland.
