Investing in Euclid's Infrastructure
Work has begun on the replacement of the sound walls along Route 2 in Euclid. All of the old panels have been removed and in a very short time the new red brick panels will be inserted. This $3 million dollar project will greatly enhance the appearance and perception of our community for those that travel by on a daily basis.
There is also a tremendous amount of resurfacing and waterline work scheduled for this summer and fall on the streets of Euclid. Some of the larger projects include the completion of East 214th Street, East 204th and Dille Road, East 248th, East 264th, parts of Tungsten and East 276th as well as the construction of the Downtown Euclid Transit Waiting Area on Lakeshore Boulevard and Bliss Lane. These projects alone represent an investment exceeding $12,000,000.
The 2010 resurfacing program includes the streets of Delaware, Seminole, Seneca, Wyandot, East 263rd, Parklane, East 286th, and sections of Ivan, Elinore, East 200th, and Bliss Lane. Also the waterline/resurfacing program includes East 276th from Euclid to Mills, Edgecliff from East 205 to East 217th, Brush Road to East 276th, as well as sections of Drakefield, Nicholas and Briardale. This represents an additional $750,000 in investment. Many more projects are scheduled for 2011, including the complete paving of Lakeshore Boulevard.
On a closing note, the new Wendy’s, Dollar Tree and Aldi’s have all opened up in Downtown Euclid and the long awaited renovation work on both the Lakeshore Plaza and Shore Center Plaza have commenced. Each shopping center is slated for about $1,000,000 in improvements that will further enhance the new and vibrant atmosphere of Downtown Euclid.
Enjoy the summer and take notice of all the good things happening in our community.
