Focus on Facts

A new Focus on Facts is available: Before The New Street: Opportunity Corridor Residents and Jobs, 2017 by Dr. Bob Gleeson and Joseph Andre


The Ohio Department of Transportation is constructing the final portion of “the Opportunity Corridor.” This new 4-6 lane city street in Cleveland will connect I-490 at the 55th Street exit to University Circle by way of 105th Street, which was extended as part of this multi-stage project. The new street will improve commute times for University Circle workers and improve access to the distressed neighborhoods along its path.
