When a new street or neighborhood is constructed, the developer must submit plans that include the proposed name of the new street(s). The City’s Community Development office and members of the Planning Commission will review it for appropriateness and clarity. For more info, call the Community Development office at 440-392-5931.
Traffic signal timing is set after a considerable study of data on normal traffic flow during peak hours at signaled intersections. All signals are equipped with the Safety Services pre-emption device that activates the 4-way red and white spotlights (one each direction) signaling to traffic that a Safety Services vehicle is rapidly approaching that intersection. A pre-emption spotlight that is ‘on’ facing your vehicle takes precedence over any other signal color light. Per law, you must remain stopped and in place until the pre-emption spotlight is out and the signal returns to the normal 3-color operation.
As a courtesy to late-night motorists when traffic is very light, certain intersection signals automatically reduce from 3-color operation to flashing yellow. This means to proceed with “caution” through the intersection.
Road lanes are re-striped and traffic direction markings repainted by Public Works technicians whenever required for clear observation. Please exercise caution and courtesy when driving through an area where pavement marking is in progress.
