Opportunity Corridor Study Team Seeks Public Input
Six public meetings to be held October 5 through 7
Cleveland (Friday, October 1, 2010) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) in conjunction with the City of Cleveland, is conducting the Opportunity Corridor Study to investigate options to create the transportation network needed for the revival of large areas of vacant land near downtown Cleveland.
This area includes land bounded by Quincy Avenue on the north, East 55th Street on the west, Woodhill Road/East 93rd Street on the east and Bessemer Avenue on the south.
Six public meetings will be held from October 5 through October 7, 2010. The purpose of these meetings will be to summarize the engineering and environmental studies completed since the previous public meetings in September 2009.
Alternatives recommended for further study will also be identified. Representatives from ODOT, the City of Cleveland and the study team from HNTB Ohio, Inc. will be available to answer questions. All public comments received will be given careful consideration as the study progresses.
