CLEVELAND – An $8 million construction project on Cleveland’s west side is causing quite a few headaches for drivers.
Multiple residents told News 5 their cars got stuck in a ditch along W. 130th Street after construction crews dug up the sidewalk on Tuesday morning as part of the project.
A manager of a local business, Giant Mart, told News 5 Perk Construction failed to warn drivers about the new traffic patterns. He said crews didn’t post caution tape near the ditch and as a result multiple people drove their cars into the hole.
One driver, 19-year-old Pedro Garcia, went to the hospital after he fell victim to the project. Garcia said he drove into the construction zone around 3 p.m. on Tuesday when another car was coming into the parking lot.
“Nothing was blocked so I tried going around them and I ended up in the ditch,” Garcia said.
