New Bike Lanes in Slavic Village

New bike lanes are coming to Slavic Village as part of the Warner Road Rehabilitation Project. The Warner Road Project will extend from Grand Division Avenue to Broadway Avenue. The project is scheduled to be finished in December 2016.

In a piece on Freshwater Cleveland, Slavic Village Development Corp Executive Director Chris Alvarado said-

“Six-foot-wide bike lanes will replace diagonal parking spots on both sides of the street, stretching from the entrance of the Mill Creek Falls reservation to Grand Division Avenue on the border of Garfield Heights.

The new bike lanes will create a safe pedestrian passageway, as existing parking spaces are often used as though traffic areas by drivers. Additionally, installation of much-needed biking options is taking place as strategic efforts, like Mill Creek Trail, aim to connect Cleveland via bike and walking paths.

Eventually, the Warner Road bike trail can be a single link in a five-mile biking and pedestrian access chain that runs all the way downtown. It can also serve as an amenity that helps draw new residents to the community.”

Slavic Village is working with the City of Cleveland to link bike lanes to the Morgana Run Trail, a two-mile bicycling and walking path which connects to the Towpath Trail and the Cleveland Metroparks Garfield Park Reservation.
