The barrels and barricades went up, and about 70,000 bus riders and commuters who routinely use Public Square adjusted with no major problems Monday.

The 15-month makeover of Public Square began smoothly after a massive publicity campaign explaining the rerouting, detours and new bus stops.

The Downtown Cleveland Alliance reports that it and City Hall received no calls of complaint.

Just two protesters kept a vigil, demonstrating against the coming changes that will transform Public Square from four separate sections of mainly pavement and stone into a big park that is greener, busier and more people-friendly.

About 40,000 RTA bus riders made Public Square a large bus terminal. Pick-up and drop-off spots have been moved a block away.
