Innerbelt Update
 
Flakes are flying, winter is approaching and ODOT’s Innerbelt Bridge Project Team is completing work on the overpasses along I-90 near downtown Cleveland.  Over the next few weeks, we’ll be working to return I-90 east to its “pre-construction” configuration – that means I-90 east will be reopened to three lanes and I-90 motorists will again have access to both E 22nd Street and Carnegie Avenue!  Among other changes, access from SR 176 (the Jennings Freeway) to I-71 north and I-90 east will also be restored.  All of these changes are expected to be in place by December 1.  We appreciate your patience as we construct this vital span that will enhance capacity, provide jobs and help bolster our economy.
