This page provides a summary of how this project will improve the roadway pavement conditions and reconstruct a new streetscape to enhance pedestrian safety and experience along the East 140th Street Corridor from St. Clair Avenue to Lakeshore Boulevard.


  • Infrastructure improvements

  • Pedestrian safety improvements 

  • Enhance pedestrian experience

  • Corridor rebranding

  • Public art and gateway

The planning study was completed by the Famicos Foundation in conjunction with the City of Cleveland, TMS Engineering, and institutional stakeholders in 2013.


  • The East 140th Street pavement resurfacing extends from St. Clair Avenue to Lakeshore Boulevard, approximately 1.37 miles.

  • From St. Clair to I-90: East 140th Street will be narrowed and rehabilitated by resurfacing pavement and reconstruction of drainage facilities.

  • From I-90 to Lakeshore: East 140th Street will maintain its existing width.  Roadway will be rehabilitated by resurfacing pavement and reconstruction of drainage facilities.

  • The streetscape along East 140th will be made safer and visually enhanced.  Improvements include:
