Major road closure in the Central Neighborhood

(Cleveland) - The City of Cleveland Traffic Engineers has closed a section of East 55th Street between Quincy and Scovill Avenue to allow Cleveland Water to begin making repair to a 30-inch transmission main.

Alex Margevicius, Commissioner of Water says local residents and businesses will not be affected, but traffic on East 55th will blocked while repairs are underway this weekend, and could extend into the work week, depending on what they find. 

The leaking main in question is more that 100 years old.
