Attention I-90 Motorists: Crews recently installed “channelizers” to separate I-90 thru traffic from I-77 north ramp traffic merging with I-90. Be sure to use I-490 east to I-77 north to access E 22nd and Carnegie, as these exits are now unavailable from I-90 east. Also, the SR 176 (Jennings Freeway) ramp to I-71 north/I-90 east was closed. Motorists will need to use I-490 east to I-77 north to access I-90 east and downtown locations. These changes will remain in place until the completion of the second Innerbelt Bridge in 2016.
The following impacts are expected this week:
· Wednesday through Friday, October 16-18, there will be intermittent lane closures at the intersection of Carnegie Avenue and Ontario Street.
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.
