CLEVELAND, Ohio– A day away from the deadline, RTA found out they will have a little extra time to figure out what to do about bus traffic through Public Square.
The federal government gave the Regional Transit Authority until Tuesday, Feb. 21; Monday morning, RTA learned the Federal Transit Administration gave the City of Cleveland a two-week extension to figure this out.
RTA said they needed more time to put a plan in place to make it safer for pedestrians before opening up Public Square.
A letter was sent to the Federal Transit Administration Thursday outlining RTA’s plan.
They say things are taking longer because they were waiting for the results from a transit zone traffic analysis and hazard and security analysis.
They say they’ve had time to look over the results and now are in the process of implementing measures they say will help keep Public Square safe if it is opened to bus traffic.
