A fight over public transportation access on a roughly 0.1-mile stretch of road in downtown Cleveland is raising questions as to whether the city has a problem in the mayor’s office.

Frank Jackson, now in the final year of his third term as Cleveland’s mayor, has refused to open the dedicated bus lanes on Superior Avenue that run through the city’s newly-redesigned Public Square.
