West 25th transit plan to give development a lift

Looking north along West 25th Street from the intersection of Franklin
Boulevard in Cleveland’s Ohio City, the 25Connects plan would do
more than speed up bus service between downtown and Old Brooklyn.
It could also help energize high-density, mixed-use development called
Transit-Oriented Development that boosts transit ridership, walking
and biking thereby reducing car dependency as this conceptual design

City Planning Commission approval is expected tomorrow for a comprehensive plan to enhance public transportation service along the busy West 25th Street corridor between downtown Cleveland and the Old Brooklyn neighborhood.

The proposed 25Connects bus rapid transit project would speed up Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) buses by 10-20 percent, tapping federal transit funds to redesign the street and create bus-only lanes similar to the HealthLine along Euclid Avenue. GCRTA is undertaking 25Connects with design assistance from Stantec Inc. of Edmonton, Canada and Seventh Hill LLC of Cleveland.
