Taylor Road Corridor Study_2
About the Study: 

The Taylor Road Corridor Study will help the City of Cleveland Heights and the City of University Heights identify ways to make Taylor Road safer and more desirable for people walking, biking, and taking transit. In addition to an analysis of Taylor Road, two topics will require study in more depth:

  1. The Cedar-Taylor Business district; and
  2. The Hebrew Academy & surrounding neighborhood.

Potential solutions and alternatives will be prioritized based on feasibility and community input. Learn more about the project overview and schedule here.

Public Meeting #1, held November 15, 2018: The NOACA project team, along with the City of Cleveland Heights, presented an overview of the Taylor Road Corridor Study and facilitated discussion on a variety of topics. The input received will help the project team understand how the public currently uses the corridor, along with its key challenges.

Materials from the Meeting:

  • View the meeting presentation
  • View the Existing Condition posters
  • View the Public Comments poster

What's Next?? NOACA staff will further refine existing conditions and conduct a parking study and other field work. A second public meeting will be held in the summer of 2019 to present potential alternatives and gather additional input. The study is expected to be complete shortly thereafter and a final public meeting will be held in the late summer of 2019 to gather feedback on those recommendations. Stay tuned for details!
