The article features the latest plans for the Lake Erie waterfront. Engineers from the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) showed slides of how the three-mile West Shoreway could be transformed from a 50mph limited access highway to a 35mph boulevard. A direct link to the beaches and picnic grounds of Edgewater Park will be provided by the construction of new streets from neighborhoods to the South that would leap over or tunnel under a railroad line to intersect with the revised Shoreway. The $50 million reconstruction of the West Shoreway, already fully funded by ODOT, demonstrates the resolve of city and state officials to do something about a lakefront almost everyone agrees is a wasted resource.
