Ground was broken at the Chagrin Highlands for a new luxury hotel Monday.

Results will be published this summer; changes could be made to signals, Bryden/Richmond intersection
The City of Beachwood should receive the results of a Chagrin Boulevard traffic management study and a master plan this summer.

The Eaton World Headquarters, which is expected to be complete in 2013, is expected to bring 900 extra cars to Beachwood every day, according to minutes from a March Safety & Public Health Committee meeting. And the rest of the Chagrin Highlands is expected to fill up as …
