*UPDATED* Based upon the results of a detailed analysis by the design team, ODOT has made a commitment to the City of Cleveland that Quincy Ave will remain open to traffic after the completion of the Opportunity Corridor project. Additionally, in response to continued coordination between ODOT, the city, and the neighborhood community development corporations, the cul-de-sac locations that were previously depicted as part of the Preferred Alternative at the direction of the Federal Highway Administration have been removed from the project as preliminary design plans are developed.
