[ARCHIVED] Public Meeting: Warrensville & Shaker Intersection

Earlier this year, the City received a $200,000 grant to make changes at the Warrensville Center Rd. and Shaker Blvd. intersections in order to increase pedestrian/bicycle safety and improve vehicle flow. These intersections are a priority due to the confusion they cause motorists and the large number of pedestrians in the area. Plus, these intersections provide direct pedestrian and bicycle access to four schools—the Shaker Heights Middle School, the Shaker Heights Public Library, Hathaway Brown School and University School—as well as the Shaker Median Trail and the RTA Green Line Warrensville station.

Proposed improvements will improve safety for all users by reducing pedestrian crossing distance and improving intersection geometry. The exact design will be determined as part of the final engineering process, but recommended changes include:

  • Reconfigure connections with South Park Blvd. and Chesterton Rd.
  • Reconfigure connections with Falmouth Rd.
  • Narrow Warrensville Center Road to remove unneeded turn lanes
  • Add pedestrian refuge islands
  • Install new pedestrian crosswalks and signals

We welcome your questions and feedback about this project. The City will host an informational meeting to review the traffic study and recommendations to improve safety. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, October 30 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm at City Hall (3400 Lee Rd.).
