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.
