A-freaking-men!   I'd like to think I had a part of this since I dropped a request in on the "Mayor's Action Center." 

This line of Joe's story is very telling:

"News 5 contacted the Cleveland Mayor's office, but we were told the city still doesn't have a 2018 resurfacing plan in place."

Why wouldn't you have a 2018 resurfacing plan in place?  It's only....2018!   

And here you have a perfect example of the culture in the ranks of City of Cleveland employees.  They are completely reactionary and have no vision.  They show up 1 minute before their shift starts and leave one minute before it ends (at least the good ones do....).  There is money for these kinds of projects, mainly held onto by the council people for distribution when they say so.  But it usually takes hundreds of citizen complaints, followed by a news story, to get something done that they should already be planning for.

It makes sense to set paving priorities after the worst of the weather is over. Temperature swings early in the year are brutal on the roads. Roads can go from okay to awful in a couple weeks. Setting priorities before winter ends seems premature, imo.

One reason the OC is so important is it will allow other routes to the Clinic and Circle to undergo major reconstruction, instead of simply patching, without creating a mess.

Plans can always be refined, but default plans could look at which roads are most important and which have already been resurfaced.  Not having any plan at all is ridiculous.

I could have told them LAST SUMMER that this road needed done.  It's just the road that most of our out-of-town visitors stopping by get to see. 

I'm sick of the excuses.  This is just one of the many instances where the City of Cleveland government fails us.  These kinds of things should just be done, and instead it takes a Carl Monday investigation to get a road paved or some potholes filled.

What person in their right mind would come up during winter? It's not a priority until springtime. It would't make sense to patch during the winter...

Of course it wouldn't make sense to patch it during the winter.  But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to PLAN it for the summer?  The City of Cleveland is incapable of even this.

Video from Bar 32. Does it look like Erieside has been paved in this video? Anyone know?

Erieside has been paved.  Pretty amazing since the City of Cleveland "had no plan yet" as of a month ago.   It's not the greatest job, but what do you expect from the lowest bidder, and it's still better than if paved by a city crew.
