Signs Of The Times In Cleveland

If you’ve lived in Cleveland for any length of time, you know that a break in the weather brings not only thoughts of Spring Training but also the dreaded orange barrels. Construction is a necessary evil I try really hard not to bitch about it but when your daily commute essentially doubles overnight the bitterness sets in.

Signs Of The Times

As we said previously, there’s a slew of work going on in Cleveland prepping for the Rebublican National Convention but even if there weren’t the orange barrels would be out in full force. It’s that time of year!

RNC In CLE – We’re Not Ready. Will We Be?

That’s Cleveland Baby is a 100% non-political blog. That said, the Republicans are coming to town and we need to be ready.

Crain’s Cleveland ran a story over the weekend with the following intro:

We’re not ready, but we will be
One year, one month and 18 days. That’s when the nation’s top Republicans, the party’s next presidential candidate, a throng of celebrities and a multitude of media will descend on Cleveland.

It’s spring / summertime so construction is a part of life in Cleveland. This year is especially bad with bridge work, I77 in worse shape than past decades, Public Square, etc. Much of this work is being done in preparation for the Repblican National Convention.

Do you think all the work will be done in time? Will it be worth it?

Get Ready Cleveland, There’s A Lot Of Road Work Ahead

Getting into downtown Cleveland can be a chore sometimes.  Sadly, it just got a bit tougher.  On 10/3/2013 ramps from the Jennings Freeway and I-90 were closed and all that traffic was re-routed onto I-490 and I-77. advises to “Opt for the Alternate!” which is a catchy way of saying “Get ready to sit in gridlock for 2 years…”

Road Work Ahead

Get used to these signs Cleveland… sadly, they’re going to be around for a long… long… time.
