    for One World Day on September 19, will MLK be closed between the shoreway and East 105 street?

    thank you, Liz Pim

    • Bill Jones says:

      No road closures during One World Day. Expect some congestion on MLK Jr. and East Blvds due to parking along the roadways and rubber necking by drivers passing through.

    Attended the festivities today! Loved it! Thank you for taking care of and celebrating such a rich and beautiful part of our city!

  3. Mary says:

    Thank you for attending, Renee, and thank you Anda and committee for the months of work leading up to this. Another thank you goes to Mother Nature for a perfect day - lovely parading weather and no rain.

    The City of Cleveland has a unique asset in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens and long may the volunteers continue to take care of them. Welcome to the new Armenian Garden, with its central structure depicting the Armenian alphabet, one of the earliest established alphabets in the world!

    The monuments and gardens look wonderful. I always try to drive down MLK rather than other routes because I enjoy it more than other city driving! Every time I go through, I always wonder who is involved and finally remembered to look into the website. Thank you for the updates and for the diversity and beauty along this route.
