Traffic Peeves? City Wants to Know

Council will look at areas where flow is poor, signals aren't effective

Councilman Joe DeMio wants to get traffic moving in Strongsville.

The at-large councilman is asking his colleagues to come up with a list of areas in town where traffic bogs down or places where signals don't keep cars flowing like they should.

"We need to try to solve traffic issues around town," DeMio said.

He's also asking residents to call their council rep and pinpoint areas where they get stuck.

Once he gets a list of the biggest problem areas, DeMio wants to start working on fixes, either with better-synchronized signals or new traffic patterns.

"We'll let the (city) engineer and the police know what we think is needed for better traffic flow," he said.

A big part of . The signals on Pearl Road from Westwood to Ellsworth are still being synchronized following the widening project.

Council is expected to discuss the list at its next caucus Feb. 20.

I can't understand why there are intersections with lights that have left turn arrows but the arrows don't activate. Two that I run into are at Westwood and Prospect and Albion and Prospect. The problem is ridiculous during the afternoon rush hour.

because you drove over the sensors with your tires and stopped your tires on top of them (you need metal to trigger the sensor)

I know this is an older article, wish I'd have seen it before. I really REALLY wish there was a light at the corner of Glendale and Howe. Anytime in the AM or after 2 it takes us a good 5 minutes to find a space to HURRY up and fit into coming off of Glendale to get onto Howe going North. It's scary as heck to try to get out going North while traffic is at a standstill going South on Howe and you can't see the oncoming traffic while trying to navigate North. Completely horrendous.
