Dramatic changes could be coming to the East 55th Street, Kinsman Road, and Woodland Avenue intersection
within the next few years.
Historically, the intersection has been one of the busiest and most dangerous in the state. It has been ranked as the worst for crashes within the five county area of Cuyahoga, Lorain, Lake, Medina, and Geauga counties.
The City of Cleveland and Ohio Department of Transportation have begun to study the possibility of eliminating one road of the intersection.
They have preliminarily concluded that rerouting Kinsman Road into East 55th Street or Woodland Avenue would have the greatest impacts to safety and traffic flow.
Three alternatives for the intersection will be presented at a community meeting for review and comment this spring. A date and time have not been set prior to publication. To be notified of the meeting, please leave your name, phone number, and address by emailing [email protected] or calling 216.341.1455.
