LIVING LORAIN CORRIDOR IMPROVEMENT PLAN
Through a comprehensive public and stakeholder involvement process, Behnke and its traffic engineering partner fashioned a Complete and Green Street plan which, based on traffic analysis, realistically balances transportation modes and inspires economic redevelopment on a 2-mile stretch from West 25th to West 85th Streets.
Existing conditions assessment included local history and culture, land use, district definition, corridor function, public transit, architectural style, community character, utilities, furnishings, and public art. Proposed streetscape improvements, including pervious pavement, tree biofiltration, green spaces, enhanced transit waiting environments, site furnishings, intersection and gateway enhancements, and brand identity and wayfinding, will create a dynamic, pedestrian-focused corridor that engages the neighborhood and re-establishes Lorain Avenue as a place and a destination.
The project is poised for implementation, and will include the City of Cleveland's first raised, separated bikeway.
