Cleveland's Euclid Corridor approved by FTA

Posted on July 11, 2002

Cleveland's Euclid Corridor Transportation Project was approved for final design by the Federal Transit Administration. The bus rapid transit (BRT) project is the largest capital improvement in Cleveland's public transit history. The 6.7-mile BRT system involves transit improvements along parallel arterials and an exclusive center median busway. The system will connect Cleveland's two largest employment centers -- downtown and University Circle. A 60-foot articulated hybrid-electric vehicle will be run on the system. The $220-million BRT project is a joint effort between the government and state and local municipalities. About 60% of the project is being funded with federal grants and the remaining 40% is coming from the state of Ohio, the city of Cleveland and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA). The RTA hopes to break ground in early 2004, with construction completed by the end of 2006. For more information on the corridor go to www.euclidtransit.org
