On December 16, 2016, the NOACA Board of Directors approved adding the projects described on this page to Connections+ 2035 - the long-range transportation plan and the State Fiscal Years 2016-2019 Transportation Improvement Program via Resolution 2016-037. Resolution 2016-036 verifies that these projects successfully completed Project Planning Review. The projects were endorsed by NOACA's:

  • Transportation Subcommittee
  • Planning and Programming Committee
  • Executive Committee

History/Background: The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) program provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation; recreational trail program projects; safe routes to school projects; and projects for planning, designing, or constructing boulevards and other roadways largely in the right-of-way of former Interstate System routes or other divided highways.

Sponsor: City of Cleveland
Estimated Total Cost: $1,875,000
Proposed Source of Federal Funds: NOACA administered TAP funds

CUY CLARK AVE STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS – The proposed project involves streetscape improvements along Clark Avenue, between West 41st Street and Quigley Avenue, in Cleveland (illustration).
The estimated construction cost is $ 1,875,000. The sponsor requests that eighty percent ($1,500,000) of the construction cost be funded with TAP funds. The sponsor has requested that NOACA reallocate $1,500,000 from another streetscape project (CUY PEARL RD/US 42 - 14.13: PID No. 100288) that was programmed in the TIP, but was completed with 100% local funds, to this project’s construction cost. The sponsor will provide the non-federal share of construction ($375,000).
