Cleveland BRT gets funds for first phase

Posted on November 9, 2004

Initial construction of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority’s (GCRTA) new bus rapid transit (BRT) project will begin soon, following the announcement of an $18.4 million grant from the Federal Transit Administration.

The federal funds will go toward the initial phase of construction of the Euclid Corridor BRT project, paying for the resurfacing of two miles of pavement and sidewalks, curb modifications to accommodate people with disabilities, relocation of light poles, signs, pavement marking, and landscaping.

“Cleveland’s twenty year dream takes another step closer to reality today,” said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Norm Mineta. “The Euclid project holds the promise of more jobs, more business, and a better way of life for countless Cleveland residents.”

Secretary Mineta recently traveled to Cleveland to sign a federal funding commitment of $82.2 million for the BRT system.
