UPDATED July 2: We rounded up all the major projects the city has planned for the summer; find out how to avoid those orange barrels

Summer is the season for orange barrels in Ohio, and Beachwood will see its share in a couple of high traffic areas this summer.

Beachwood staff engineer Tom Kreczko gave a few words of advice for drivers.

“Take your time, drive carefully, and pay attention to the detour routes,” he said.
