Beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, January 3 and continuing through approximately 3 p.m. on Friday, January 7, crews will close the I-90 westbound ramp to W. 14th Street in order to conduct geotechnical exploration for Cleveland’s new westbound Innerbelt Bridge. The Abbey Avenue exit ramp will remain open and motorists will be detoured via Abbey Avenue to W. 14th Street. On I-90, heavy truck traffic is no longer restricted, however it is suggested that trucks in the eastbound direction remain detoured via I-490 eastbound and I-77 northbound in order to increase traffic flow efficiencies. Steel repairs on the existing bridge will continue through approximately May 15, 2011.
**Crews on behalf of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District work to relocate an existing interceptor sewer in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. Both Abbey Ave. between W. 12th St. and W. 13th St. and W. 11th St. between University Rd. and Abbey Ave. are closed to vehicular traffic until the summer of 2011. In addition, W. 14th St., just south of Fairfield Ave., is restricted until mid-May 2011. For more information, please contact NEORSD at 216.881.6600. Construction of a new westbound bridge is expected to begin in early 2011. Substantial completion of the new bridge is expected by the fall of 2013, the entire project is expected to be complete by summer 2014.
