Construction begins Monday on Cleveland's Public Square makeover.  The square will undergo a $32 million transformation project. The square will be made over with green spaces, fountains and a space called KeyBank Promenade. 

A key aspect to the project is permanently closing Ontario Street through the square. Superior Avenue will shrink in size and sometimes for special events, close completely. Traffic will be affected, especially RTA traffic.

A completion date for the project is set for June 2016, just in time for the Republican National Convention.
