Center Street
The Northbound curb lane on Center Street in front of Mentor High School has been closed due to the failure of a storm sewer structure. The lane closure will last for several weeks.


City Market / Center Street Turn Lane
Roadway work has begun for the construction of the right turn lane on Center Street into the City Market site.  The contractor is currently working on the new City Market entrance on Tyler Boulevard, as well as the new Classic Chevy entrance on Center Street.

Diamond Centre Turn Lane
The westbound right turn lane is being extended from Heisley Road to Emerald Court. An eastbound right turn lane into the new Menards site is also being constructed. Two-way traffic is being maintained with narrowed lanes to allow for the construction. Crews are currently pouring concrete. Work is anticipated to be complete by late November.

Orchard Road Reconstruction
Orchard Road is the second street in the City of Mentor’s Headlands Residential Road Reconstruction initiative.  This project will reconstruct Orchard Road from Woodridge Lane to Lake Overlook Drive. Sanitary sewer has begun and will continue through the Spring. Gas main relocation at intersections will occur over the next several weeks. Traffic will be maintained. Weather is a factor.

Gas line work is scheduled on Orchard Road on Saturday, November 17.  Crews will be crossing the road at the intersections of Orchard Rd/Garden Ln. and Orchard Rd/Maiden Ln. Traffic will be maintained at the road crossings during construction.

Additional Resources


Rice Detention Basin Project
The Rice Detention Basin project is now underway. The purpose of the project is to create a stormwater basin to attenuate peak flows during large rain events.  Residents may experience minor short-term delays while equipment and trucks are working in the roadway. However, two-way traffic and access to property will be maintained at all times. Learn more.
