ODOT puts in a traffic pattern change on the inbound Innerbelt Bridge, but no signs have been put in place to warn drivers.
CLEVELAND - A new phase of the Innerbelt Bridge Project could cause traffic headaches throughout downtown Cleveland starting Monday night.
Beginning at 8 p.m., Ontario will be closed from Carnegie to East 9th Street while crews carry in steel beams. About six trucks a day will be delivering the massive pieces of metal to the site. It will also cause reduced lanes on Ontario during the day.
ODOT plans on being flexible with the construction schedule, adjusting the times of night construction for major events.
Here is how the project will affect you:
- Expect daily lane restrictions along inbound Ontario, causing heavy daytime traffic congestion.
- Ontario will be closed Mon-Thurs nights beginning at 8.
Detour for Ontario Street closure:
Inbound drivers take E. 14th to E. 18th to Carnegie to Ontario
Outbound drivers - take Carnegie to East 9th -- to get on I-90
- I-90 eastbound exit ramp to Ontario closed:
Use I-90 eastbound to East 9th Street to Huron to Ontario. This restriction is in place around the clock.
- Ontario street entrance ramp to I-77 southbound will be closed:
Detour via East 9th Street to I-77 southbound
- Eastbound Carnegie Ave traffic won't be allowed to turn right onto Ontario:
Detour is via East 9th Street.
Innerbelt Bridge Coverage
A ramp in Tremont will be temporarily reopened for Friday morning's commute.
The Ohio Department of Transportation is closing I-90 eastbound closure Thursday morning at 9, which means commuters should expect major delays along a number of highways
Cleveland saw the opening of the new Innerbelt bridge over the weekend - at least for westbound drivers.
The Tremont neighborhood has been hit especially hard with street closings and detours during the construction of the new Innerbelt Bridge. Now that the bridge is opening, much of the heavy construction should taper off.
The new westbound Innerbelt bridge, which was set to open to traffic Saturday, has been delayed until Sunday or Monday.
Two new Innerbelt Bridge construction projects will affect west side inbound drivers for the next three years.
The Innerbelt Bridge project is making a major change to your commute.
