Truck traffic from the nearby Discount Drug Mart seems to be
a lingering issue for a several residents on Grace Avenue.
More than two-dozen of them showed up to the Lakewood City Council meeting on Monday to share their concerns.
Since the store opened earlier this year, residents have shared concerns about the increased traffic on the residential street, intrusive lighting and “commercial encroachment” onto the residential portion of the street.
One resident even presented a slideshow, featuring 15 trucks photographed during a four-day period, according to Cleveland.com. Truckers are encouraged to take Detroit Avenue, rather than the side streets.
According to city officials, Discount Drug Mart plans to conduct a traffic study at the location and share the findings with the planning commission later this year.
