A ramp in Tremont will be temporarily reopened for Friday morning's commute.
CLEVELAND - Cleveland saw the opening of the new Innerbelt bridge over the weekend - at least for westbound drivers.
The official completion of the first half of the Innerbelt bridge ends years of traffic shifts and construction work. The Ohio Department of Transportation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this month.
If you haven't had a chance to see the new bridge yet, take a drive down Interstate 90 with Chief Photographer Mike Harris as he rolls over it in the video to the left.
He gets up to the bridge at the 1:40 mark.
The bridge is 10 feet lower than the old one, and is supposed to offer better views of downtown Cleveland, officials said.
