University Circle Mobility Study – TLCI

The study will produce a comprehensive evaluation of existing and forecasted conditions in the University Circle area, including automobile, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian facilities; intersection and traffic flow conditions and performance; workforce travel patterns; and wayfinding for all modes. I t will be integrated with existing studies of transportation systems and plans for facility expansion in the study area. It will include significant stakeholder and community engagement on all levels and will produce a series of recommendations to inform a subsequent transportation management implementation plan.

Lakefron Greenway and Downtown Connector Study

Final Report (PDF)

The plan is intended to tie together the lakefront and the near eastside neighborhoods, which is a reasonable distance for bicyclists and pedestrians; however it is separated by Interstate 90 and the Amtrak line. The goals of this project will be to improve the North and South marginal Roads for travel by bicyclists and pedestrians and to strengthen the connection between the lakefront and the near eastside neighborhoods. Continue to develop the bicycle network further to better connect these near east side neighborhoods with downtown Cleveland. Finally, look at modal connections between districts in the west side of downtown through the central business district and onwards towards the near eastside neighborhoods and districts.
