Safety and Traffic tips as Cavaliers Playoff Series Continues

Apr 20, 2015

As the Cavaliers playoff series continues, the City of Cleveland would like to remind visitors and all those in the downtown area of the parking restrictions that will be in place for the home playoff game this Tuesday, April 21 at 7:00 pm.  

“No Parking” restrictions will be in place at the below areas. These restrictions go into effect two hours before game time.  

  • Huron Road – from Ontario Street to Prospect Avenue
  • Prospect Avenue – from Ontario Street To East 14th Street
  • East 9th Street – from Euclid Avenue to Carnegie Avenue
  • East 4th Street – from Prospect Avenue to Huron Road

In addition to the notification of parking restrictions, the City of Cleveland and Division of Police offer the following advice to improve your visit and downtown experience:

Arrive early. Plan your commute beforehand to effectively utilize your time. For Tuesday’s Cavaliers game, there will be a free FanFest outside The Q beginning at 4:30 p.m. Arrive early to enjoy the festivities. 

Ride RTA. Either park and ride or plan your commute with to enjoy all downtown Cleveland has to offer. 

Put Your Junk in Your Trunk! Valuable items should not be left in the interior of a vehicle where others can see them. Even better is to place these items in the trunk prior to arriving at your destination.

Be aware of increased pedestrian traffic in the downtown area.

If you see something suspicious, say something. Report any suspicious activity to safety officials.    

The Bureau of Traffic will supplement their customary allotment of traffic enforcement officers with additional police officers and traffic controllers to facilitate traffic into and out of downtown and to assist with pedestrian traffic. Numerous officers will be detailed to the area during the event for added security and crowd control.
