Taylor Road Corridor Study

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 biking and walking. 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 and schedule here.
