Final Roadwork at Warrensville and Chagrin to Cause Delays
Asphalt paving among last components of project
Dateline: November 16, 2015 – With the end of roadwork construction in sight, drivers will now face some of the most challenging traffic conditions in the Warrensville/Chagrin intersection -- particularly at rush hour.
Lanes are more tightly constricted as crews finish road repairs to prepare for paving. Even though the duration of this work is short, it does mean that rush hour traffic will be even slower and more congested than previously.
Residents are encouraged to continue to patronize businesses during these important holiday shopping days, but the City urges motorists to find alternate routes during morning and evening rush hours. This will help alleviate traffic in the last few weeks of the project. Conditions will improve on or about November 25.
For questions, please call the Cuyahoga County field office at 216-752-9047.
