Lee Road Traffic Study & Corridor Plan
The Lee Road corridor was clearly identified as one of two areas most in need of improvement in the City’s Strategic Investment Plan, adopted in 2000. The Strategic Investment Plan recommended improvements to the corridor, particularly between Chagrin and Scottsdale; this recommendation was confirmed by the Economic Development Strategy adopted by Council in 2010.
To accomplish this, the City applied for and received a $60,000 Transportation for Livable Communities grant from NOACA to study the Lee Road Corridor.
The Lee Road Traffic Study & Corridor Plan examines options for, and feasibility of, reconfiguring the Lee Road corridor, including traffic and pedestrian improvements, streetscape renovations and the addition of bike lanes. The purpose of this planning study is to improve transportation access and circulation for all modes—cars and bikes and people—in the Lee Road corridor.
A small group comprised of city staff, community representatives and technical experts was invited to serve on the Project Steering Committee (PSC) to act as a sounding board for the project consultants.
