Portion of Lakeside Avenue closed for structural issue in tunnel


(Editor’s note: Cleveland police originally said the street was closed between East and West roadways, which do not intersect with Lakeside Avenue.)

CLEVELAND (WJW)– Lakeside Avenue in downtown Cleveland is closed between East Mall Drive and West Mall Drive near the Huntington Convention Center until further notice, police said.

It’s because of a sink hole or structural issue, according to Cleveland Division of Police.

A large piece of concrete fell in the entrance to the tunnel near Cleveland City Hall, sources told the FOX 8 I-Team. A structural engineer will be there on Tuesday.
