Attention Downtown Motorists:  Good news!  We’re nearing the end of construction at the Carnegie/Ontario Intersection.  In order to complete the piece of pavement in the center of the intersection, beginning overnight Wednesday and continuing through Thursday morning, October 11, crews will restrict “thru” movements for Carnegie motorists at the intersection.  This intersection is likely to be congested and motorists are advised to use one of the many alternate streets in Downtown Cleveland. Carpooling, using alternate forms of transportation – like biking and walking – and riding RTA are great options to avoid congestion!  Motorists are reminded to follow all posted signage and pay special attention to police directing traffic.  Details are below.  
Regional Interstate Impacts:
