Attention Motorists:  Numerous traffic changes and shifts will continue to take place as we move ALL traffic onto the new Innerbelt Bridge.  During this time, please expect slow-downs, particularly during the AM commute.  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, carpooling and riding RTA are suggested to avoid congestion. 
We appreciate your patience as these traffic changes take place. Continue to visit our “Traffic Impacts” page at  The following impacts are upcoming or recently in-place:
Tremont Impacts:
·        At 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 14 the W 14th Street on-ramp to I-90 east toward downtown will close.  This ramp will remain closed until the completion of the second new Innerbelt Bridge in late 2016. Remember: Getting to Tremont will NOT change, but use an alternate route out of the neighborhood!  Click here for a printable copy of Tremont detours.  Additional info for businesses is available here.
Regional Interstate Impacts:
·        New Traffic Pattern:  I-90 east, over the Innerbelt Bridge is maintained with two (2) thru-lanes, stay right to avoid congestion.
Downtown Impacts:
  • The E 14th entrance ramp to I-90 west and Ontario Street exit from I-90 east are closed until the completion of the second new Innerbelt Bridge in late 2016.
  • The E 9th and Ontario ramps to I-90 west are OPEN to the new bridge.  There is no access to I-71 south using these ramps. To reach I-71 south, Opt for the Alternate! by using I-77 south and I-490 west.  This access will be restored later this month when all westbound traffic is moved onto the new bridge.
