Innerbelt Bridge project causing traffic changes on I-90 in Cleveland
Be aware of closed exits, lane reductions on I-90 in Cleveland
by WKSU's AMANDA RABINOWITZ
and LAUREN SCHMOLL


Morning Edition Host
Amanda Rabinowitz
 
In The Region:
If your commute includes I-90, there are several changes in place as part of construction on the new Innerbelt Bridge. I-90 E is reduced to two thru-lanes and two busy exits into the Midtown area of Cleveland – Carnegie Ave. and East 22nd. St. are both closed from I-90E.
From the Ohio Department of Transportation:

Attention I-90 Motorists:
  Traffic changes have been implemented as part of ODOT’s “Alternate Route Plan.” You’ve seen these changes before as these were also implemented in the summer of 2011. Crews have installed “channelizers” to separate I-90 thru traffic from I-77 north ramp traffic merging with I-90.  Be sure to use I-490 east to I-77 north to access E 22nd and Carnegie, as these exits will be unavailable from I-90 east.
   
The SR 176 (Jennings Freeway) ramp to I-71 north/I-90 east is also closed. Motorists will need to use I-490 east to I-77 north to access I-90 east and downtown locations. This change will remain in place until the completion of the second Innerbelt Bridge in 2016.  Regional Interstates: I-90 east is reduced to two thru-lanes. Motorists who travel from the west via I-90 east will need to use I-490 east to I-77 north to reach MidTown destinations via E 22nd St and Carnegie. These changes will remain in place until completion of the second Innerbelt Bridge in 2016.  

Tremont Impacts: 
Next Friday, October 11, Abbey Avenue will be closed under I-90 from 4 a.m. until 11 a.m. Use the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge and the Innerbelt Bridge to detour; or use W 11th, Kenilworth, Willey and Columbus Road. 

Motorists are encouraged to "Opt for the Alternate!" and use I-490 and I-77 where an extra lane has been added and access to all downtown Cleveland exits is maintained. 

Alternate forms of transportation and riding RTA are suggested to avoid congestion.
