Beginning on Monday, February 23, 2015, Northfield Road at the intersection of Chagrin Boulevard and Warrensville Center Road will close permanently.
Traffic will no longer be able to travel on Northfield Road across the intersection of Chagrin Boulevard and Warrensville Center Road. Instead, Northfield Road will dead end into a new cul-de-sac set for construction this spring.
All local traffic having to enter this stretch of Northfield Road will be able do so from the new roundabout connected to Warrensville Center Road. The roundabout meets the remaining Northfield Road with Warrensville Center Road.
This road closure is part of the Warrensville Center Road/Van Aken Roadway Reconfiguration Project, as a part of the City of Shaker Heights' long-term economic development plans. The project will reconstruct the existing seven-leg intersection to create a more conventional and much safer four-leg intersection. The new intersection will carry traffic east/west on Chagrin Boulevard and north/south on Warrensville Center Road.
