Noble Road resurfacing project gets underway
Noble Road will be resurfaced from where it begins at Mayfield Road to Cleveland Heights’ northern border with East Cleveland. Cuyahoga County is overseeing the $2.947 project, which is completely funded by the county, including engineering, administration and construction costs.
C. A. Agresta Construction Co. won the contract, and will begin work in April. Construction is expected to be completed by October.
According to Mike Tworzydlo, area construction manager for Cuyahoga County, the road resurfacing will include repairing the underlying structure and replacing curb ramps so that they are ADA compliant. Any broken curbs will be repaired. Although there was some initial discussion about adding bike lanes to Noble Road, this is not part of the project. The road will be re-striped to match what is currently there.
Traffic will be maintained in two directions on all parts of the road, except for the first block at Mayfield Road, where traffic will be redirected to Warrensville Center Road. Access to businesses will be maintained because the sidewalks will not be affected. The county will publish and distribute a flyer to businesses and residents a week or so before construction starts.
The city of Cleveland Heights will place a button on its home page to directly connect users to information and updates on the Noble Road project. Contact the city’s Department of Public Works at 216-691-7300 for more information.
