Ohio Lakefront West – West 73rd Street Extension

Ohio Department of Transportation’s $24 million road extension improved connections between Cleveland’s lower west side communities to West Shoreway and with U.S. 6 and State Route 2 and Edgewater Park. As part of the project, crews built a new roadway bridge over railroad tracks and extended West 73rd Street to provide a new multimodal connection from the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood to the West Shoreway and Edgewater Park. They also relocated several utility lines and added new storm drainage. Planners say the result is enhanced connectivity between existing and future neighborhoods that makes lakefront communities more desirable and eases access to recreational activities and lakefront attractions.
