As you are aware, East 222nd Street is long overdue for a rehabilitation. The City of Euclid is excited to announce that starting this June, this long-needed project is set to begin. The project limits are from St. Clair Avenue to Babbitt Road, and will entail:

  • New curbing
  • Drainage repairs  
  • Sanitary sewer repairs  
  • New waterline  
  • Pavement resurfacing  
  • Full depth pavement repairs  
  • New signs  
  • New drive aprons
  • Sidewalk replacement (where needed)  
  • New ADA ramps 

As with any construction project, there will be delays and inconveniences. In order to allow the contractor sufficient room to work, two-way traffic cannot be maintained. This will require northbound traffic to be detoured, while southbound traffic will be maintained.

The detour route will be signed and will follow St. Clair Ave. to Babbit Road. The project is scheduled for completion in late fall 2018, and the directional detour, one-way traffic scheme, will be active through the entire project duration. The contractor is required to notify the property owners during times on planned water outages, and drive apron closure.

As with any construction project there may be unplanned water outages, temporary road closures, noise, etc. We will work hard to keep the disruptions down to a minimum, but we ask that you be patient.
