ODOT Will Rehabilitate Broadway Bridges and Protect Mill Creek

ODOT Will Rehabilitate Broadway Bridges and Protect Mill Creek

GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio — About two miles upstream from Cuyahoga County’s tallest waterfall, Mill Creek zigzags under Broadway Avenue.

 

The ODOT (Ohio Department of Transportation) wants to remake two short, low bridges on Broadway and fight erosion in Mill Creek below.

 

The creek is one of the bigger waterways in eastern Cuyahoga, wending 12.2 miles and draining about 19 square miles.

 

The construction work is scheduled for 2020, but ODOT needs to invite public comment now under rules for parklands. Still, officials from ODOT, the Cleveland Metroparks, and Cleveland City Hall say the project won’t interfere with park habitats or activities. Construction vehicles will be stored and staged near the bridges.

At no charge, the department will get 4,212 square feet square from the park and gain easement rights to another 3,009. ODOT will also gain a temporary right of way to 1,203 square feet of land owned by Cleveland.

 

 

 

Crews hired by ODOT will replace the bridges’ railings, surfaces, and bases. They’ll also repair stream erosion and protect the banks with rocks.

 

The public may comment by May 5 to ODOT’s Mark Alan Carpenter, district environmental engineer, 550 Transportation Blvd., Garfield Heights, OH 44125.

 

Tesla Halts Production of Model 3 for the Second Time in Recent Weeks

Tesla Halts Production of Model 3 for the Second Time in Recent Weeks

cleveland teslaTesla eased off the accelerator in manufacturing its new mass-market electric car as the company faces questions over its ability to make new vehicles in large quantities.

 

The production of the Model 3 has been temporarily suspended, as it remains challenged by problems on the assembly line in Fremont, California.

 

Tesla customers who’ve waited to take delivery of a car they put on a deposit on sight unseen more than two years ago will have to wait a little longer.

 

It’s at least the second time in recent weeks that production has been halted. This time, Tesla said it made the move “to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks to boost production rates.”

 

The latest hiccup comes after Tesla surprised investors with a rapid improvement in production pace at the end of March when its output hit 2,000 vehicles per week.

 

Some industry experts have suggested that CEO Elon Musk’s ambition to adopt advanced automation on the assembly line was misplaced.

 

“Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake. To be precise, my mistake. Humans are underrated,” Musk said last week on Twitter.

 

The company declined to say how long production would be stalled but said it’s “not unusual” and “our Model 3 production plan includes periods of planned downtime.”

 

“These periods are used to improve automation and systematically address bottlenecks in order to increase production rates,” the company said in a statement that mirrored the one issued in February. “This is not unusual and is, in fact, common in production ramps like this.”

 

Production on the car, first unveiled in March 2016, has been delayed several times. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has blamed some of the issues on the heavy reliance on robots on the production line.

 

Tesla hopes to produce 5,000 Model 3s a week by the end of June. The car, which can go 220 miles on a single charge, has a base price of $35,000, though the addition of even basic options can easily put the cost way north of that.

cleveland newsCLEVELAND, Ohio — A 30-year-old man died late Thursday after being shot by a man chasing him from a home in the city’s Stockyards neighborhood.

 

The shooter also wounded a 23-year-old man who was sitting in a parked car near the home, according to police. Police did not say if the two victims knew each other, or who lived at the home.

 

The incident happened at about 10 p.m. on West 58th Street between Storer and Dennison avenues.

 

Police that the 30-year-old man came running out of a home on the street, followed by a gunman, witnesses told.

 

The gunman shot the 30-year-old man several times. Paramedics found the 30-year-old man dead in the middle of the street. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner will release the man’s name once his family is notified.

 

A bullet also struck the 23-year-old man in the head as he sat in a parked car with two other men. His friends drove him to MetroHealth, where he is hospitalized.

 

The gunman ran off after the shooting and has not been arrested or identified by police.
