Streetscape Update

On May 2, the City of Cleveland Board of Control approved Terrace Construction Company Inc.'s bid for the Kamm’s Streetscape, Phase I. This project, which will run from June to November, sets the stage for the dramatic changes coming next year with Phase II. Phase I consists of the installation of approximately 1.3 miles of underground concrete-encased duct bank and manholes along Lorain Avenue and West 150th Street from a point 360 feet south of Lorain Avenue to Fairview Hospital. Please visit KCDC's Streetscape page and click on NEW—Detailed Phase I Information for more details.
