DeMarco notified residents tonight of the new traffic pattern to take effect this wee and thanked local municipal departments for making it happen.

“The Beachwood Police Department would like to inform our residents that on or about June 2nd, the intersection of Beachwood Blvd & Birch Street will be converted to a multi-way stop. Please use caution and be alert to this new traffic pattern,” Chief DeMarco said tonight. “I would like to thank our department’s Traffic Safety Unit, led by Sgt.
