I-480 Cloverleaf work to resume overnight April 11
April 10, 2008, Garfield Heights, OH… Work to completely rehabilitate and rebuild the eastbound lanes of I-480 between Tuxedo Ave. and the Valley View Bridge will begin overnight Friday, April 11, 2008.
On Friday, April 11, crews will begin lane closures of I-480 eastbound at approximately 8 p.m. followed by the complete closure of the SR 176 (Jennings Freeway) southbound ramp to I-480 eastbound and Granger Rd./Brookpark Rd. entrance to I-480 eastbound at 10 p.m. All lanes and ramps are expected to reopen by mid-morning Saturday, April 12.
Crews will work to shift eastbound traffic toward the center median maintaining three, reduced-width lanes during peak hours. All lanes and ramps are expected to remain open during peak hours as the project progresses.
One lane of the SR 176 southbound ramp to I-480 eastbound will remain closed permanently in order to eliminate a tight merge and allow for smoother traffic flow onto I-480 eastbound.
All dates and times are approximate and weather dependent. Should weather prohibit the operation overnight April 11, crews will move the operation to overnight Saturday, April 12.
Project: Major rehabilitation of 2.58 miles of existing mainline I-480 from Tuxedo Ave. to the Valley View Bridge, including inner and outer lanes and 3.8 miles of the I-77 and Granger Rd. interchange ramps.
