Construction of the new Frontage Road began in the summer of
2017 and closed the Broadway Avenue entrance ramp to I-77 southbound. The new
Frontage Road now provides Broadway Avenue motorists access to I-77 southbound
via Pershing Ave.
Construction on the new multi-use path on the west side of I-77 between
Broadway and Pershing avenues will continue through spring 2019. Pedestrians
are detoured via Roseville Ct. and East 45th Street except for the
paved portion of the path between Czar Ave. and Pershing Ave.
Upon completion of
the Broadway Avenue Bridge in late-2018, the new Frontage Road will carry only
one lane of southbound traffic between Broadway and Pershing avenues.
The Cleveland Innerbelt Modernization Plan is focused on improving safety,
reducing congestion and traffic delays and modernizing interstate travel along
I-71, I-77 and I-90 through Downtown Cleveland. This investment by the State of
Ohio will rehabilitate and reconstruct about five miles of interstate
roadways – which includes the two new George V. Voinovich Bridges that carry
I-90 traffic - and address operational, design, safety and access shortcomings
that severely impact the ability of the Innerbelt Freeway system to meet the
transportation needs of Northeast Ohio.
