well it is a start, and it is VERY EXCITING for me, as it is the only way i can bike in and out of my neighborhood sometimes:
from dowd’s office:
The Department of Public Works has announced that they will be paving N. Negley Ave. between Stanton Ave. and East Liberty Blvd. on weekdays from Monday June 27 – Friday July 8. During this time, you may want to look for an alternate route while looking forward to some smooth pothole free streets.

If/When they get around to Perrysville, there are only a few places that are really bad: the hill between Federal and Federal, and the level area just south of Marshall. I would rather see them trying to hit the worst places instead of redoing the entire length.
i dunno about negley but fwiw it looked like they were setting up to finish paving beechwood today. let’s keep our fingers crossed they get the bike lanes right. erok told me it’s supposed to be separate car + bike lanes (hope i didn’t ruin the surprise)
milling worked for beechwood, modulo the manholes sticking way up above the surface. anyways, beechwood is now paved, no paint yet. fwiw, i’d probably avoid riding on it today like i just did – it’s still kind of oily, my tires got a good coating of asphalt and were picking up stray stones.
