NOTICE: Sewer project to impact W. 6th, Superior Avenue hill
Traffic in construction zones will be impacted for additional eight weeks
February 2, 2018—Beginning Feb. 5, the W. Superior Avenue hill between W. 10th Street and Robert Lockwood Drive will be closed. Along W. 10th Street, one lane of traffic will be maintained allowing parking garage and surface lot access.
Beginning February 8, southbound traffic on W. 6th Street between St. Clair and W. Superior Avenues will be detoured. A single northbound lane will remain open and all access to parking lots will be maintained during construction. Southbound RTA trolleys and buses will be rerouted accordingly and riders are asked to check riderta.com for updates.
The purpose of the Superior Stones Canal CSO Improvements Project is to increase the capacity of the sewer system, thereby, reducing the amount of raw sewage discharging into the Cuyahoga River. At the completion of the project, more than 13 million gallons of raw sewage discharging into the environment will be eliminated annually.
This project began in August 2016 and is part of Project Clean Lake, the Sewer District’s 25-year program to control the amount of raw sewage discharged into area waterways, including Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie, during heavy rains. Project Clean Lake will reduce combined sewer overflow (CSO) from 4.5 billion gallons to 500 million gallons by 2036.
