Remember: 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. Using alternate forms of transportation, adjusting commute times and riding RTA are suggested to avoid congestion. 
Please exercise caution in work zones.
