About the Study: Franklin Boulevard is an important neighborhood street for the residents, schools, institutions, and businesses that use it every day. The Franklin Boulevard Traffic Calming Study is being led by the City of Cleveland and NOACA, alongside the neighborhoods of Ohio City and Detroit-Shoreway. The study seeks to identify ways to make Franklin Boulevard safer and more desirable for pedestrians and bicyclists.

What's Next?? User input will help guide the recommendations of this study.  After receiving input from the community, we’ll come up with multiple alternatives for potential traffic calming measures based on a study of existing conditions and the public feedback we’ve received.  There will be another public meeting early next year to present potential improvements for public feedback and comment. The entire study should be complete in the spring of 2018. 

Public Meetings: 

  • October 11, 2017: Identify and discuss issues and concerns and provide input on alternatives.
    • View the presentation from the meeting.
  • February 2018:  Specific date is TBD. See and comment on potential changes and recommendations.

Thank you to those who took our online survey. Your feedback is very important!
