Cleveland seeks one big grant for lakefront connector, Shoreway Blvd, multimodal station

 Looking east from West 3rd Street, there are multiple barriers between Downtown
Cleveland’s central business district, at right, and the Lake Erie waterfront, to the
left. They include the Shoreway highway, visible above the trees, and the access
ramps to it are in the foreground. Most of these features are due to go away if
the city is able to secure federal funds to afford it (Google).

In one of the largest single federal grant requests ever by the city of Cleveland, Mayor Justin Bibb’s administration is seeking $268 million from the federal government to tackle four main lakefront improvement projects simultaneously. The projects, which include reconfiguring the Shoreway highway into a boulevard with intersections, have the backing of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), Cuyahoga County and others.
