Stretching from East 93rd Street to I-490, the new five-lane, urban boulevard improved the roadway network within a historically underserved area of Cleveland and enhanced access to Cleveland’s cultural hub, healthcare, and educational facilities. As lead designer, Michael Baker designed a new 5-lane boulevard extension from I-490 on new alignment to University Circle in Cleveland, Ohio. The 3-mile boulevard includes 7 signalized intersections, 7 bridges, and 12 retaining walls. The work required significant coordination with and adjustments to utilities, railroads and transit infrastructure.

With the proximity of multiple branches of the Kingsbury Run stormwater overflow (SWO) to the project, the stormwater design addressed removal of large drainage areas from the combined sewer network and required significant coordination with Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. The design accounted for water quality treatment and detention in accordance with the Ohio Department of Transportation L&D Volume 2 requirements and outlet into SWO outfalls downstream of regulators on the Kingsbury Run system where feasible. The project drainage area included seven outfalls over two CSO sewer sheds, CSO-40 (Southerly) and CSO-204 (Easterly).
