This year’s resurfacing program is based on a new City of Cleveland Five-Year Capital Improvement Program and based on Pavement Management Ratings.
The Ward 14 allocation is the third highest amount in the city and indicates the large number of poorly rated streets. The new and increased resurfacing budget is planned to be increased even more beginning next year to $10 million per year. In 2014 the allocation was $4.4 million.
|W. 38th Street|
As you can see from the tables below, there are nine streets scheduled to be resurfaced this year in Ward 14, but there are another 38 streets that are ranked C/D to F. Even with the increased funding this year and even more funding beginning next year, the City has a lot of poor rated streets to catch up on.
When making street selections, other factors are taken into consideration in addition to the pavement conditions. There are difficult issues to consider such as how many households are being impacted by the investment and what percentage of the length of street is in the poorest condition. In Ward 14 over the past few years, due to limited funding, we began spot re-surfacing to improve sections of streets that had very poor conditions in sections due to sub-rated utility-cut repairs and over-patching.
If residents have any questions or concerns as to the streets selected this year and the plans to accelerate re-surfacing, please call the Ward 14 office at 216-664-4238.

In addition to the residential streets re-surfacing project, Denison Avenue ($9M)(Ridge Rd. to SR-176) and W. 25th Street ( I-71 to Detroit Avenue) is being completed in this construction season. The re-decking of the overpass bridge at W. 25th Street and I-71 ($2.8M) is complete and two median strips with new trees have been installed as a part of the bridge project. W. 73rd Street (Denison Ave. to Lorain) is scheduled for re-surfacing in 2016 in conjunction with funding from Cuyahoga County.
Plans and funding are also being finalized for Pearl Rd. ($9.8M) to be re-constructed from Brookpark Rd to I-71, and for Broadview Rd. ($3.5M) to be resurfaced from Brookpark to Pearl Rd.
