Chagrin/Lynnfield Intersection - Bike & Pedestrian improvements
The City of Shaker Heights plans to install infrastructure improvements in fall 2020 at the Chagrin/Lynnfield intersection to make it easier for pedestrians and bicyclists to safely cross Chagrin Boulevard. The design process begins in late June with several opportunities for public feedback.
Existing Conditions and Background
The intersection is located midway between Shaker Towne Centre at Lee Road and the Van Aken District at Warrensville Center Road. Lynnfield Road provides direct connections to RTA transit—the #14 bus along Chagrin Boulevard and the Blue Line rapid along Van Aken Boulevard.
The intersection is also located within a half-mile walk to many important neighborhood institutions, including Lomond Elementary School, St. Dominic School and Church, Shaker Family Center and St. Peter’s Lutheran Church.
The Chagrin/Lynnfield intersection is currently challenging for pedestrians and bicyclists due to the heavy volume of traffic through the intersection (approximately 15,000 cars per day) and a lack of adequate pedestrian infrastructure.
Neighborhood residents have requested changes at this location since the traffic signal was removed in 2005 as part of a Citywide signal project. State regulations at that time prioritized vehicles over pedestrians and bicyclists, to the detriment of the surrounding neighborhoods and their residents.
