Update: Lakeside Avenue downtown shut down due to a structural issue underneath the street
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - According to Cleveland Police, Lakeside Avenue is closed between East and West Roadways until further notice due to a structural issue. Those roads sit on either side of the Huntington Convention Center.
According to a representative from the convention center, a piece of concrete from the center’s loading dock fell off.
The loading dock is located underneath Lakeside Ave.
As a precautionary measure, the city shut down Lakeside Avenue while structural engineers assess the damage to the loading dock.
The city hopes to have the street reopened sometime Wednesday morning.
