CLEVELAND - The Lorain-Carnegie Bridge, also known as the Hope Memorial Bridge, will receive a new designated bicycle lane on the north lane.
Crossing the Cuyahoga river will be safer for cyclists and pedestrians on this 14.5 foot multi-use path.
The project is a collaboration between the Ohio Department of Transportation, the city of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County and local cycling advocates.
Part of the project includes the installation of lighting to highlight the "Guardians of Traffic" art deco pylongs that stand watch over both ends of the bridge.
The curb-side lane of the westbound lane of the bridge will be closed during this construction period, which will last into the fall.
All of the bike improvements on the bridge and nearby intersections are expected be completed during the fall/winter period.
In all, the project will cost $4.5 million.
