Plaza Boulevard Extension

Mentor, Ohio

A long-awaited connector relieves traffic congestion and improves emergency response time.

CT provided planning, design, and construction for the extension of Plaza Boulevard providing an additional north/south access roadway with two at grade crossings of the Norfolk Southern Railroad and the CSX Railroad. This new roadway helps to improve emergency response time and alleviate traffic congestion on SR 306 and SR 615. The new roadway section included two travel lanes, one in each direction, for the majority of the project. The design provided for additional left turn lanes at the Tyler Boulevard /Clover Avenue Intersection for the northeast bound side of Clover Avenue and both north and south bound sides of Tyler Boulevard.

CT designed a new storm drainage system to meet a two-year design storm with a 10-year hydraulic gradient review and a new traffic signal for the Tyler Boulevard/Clover Avenue intersection.
