Crews prepare to begin construction of a new Innerbelt Bridge which will eventually carry westbound traffic. Overnight each night Monday, March 21 through Friday, March 25, crews will close E. 14th Street under the existing Innerbelt Bridge from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. each morning. Motorists will be detoured via E. 9th or E. 22nd Streets. Nightly lane closures on I-90 over E. 14th St. are also expected. Until approximately late May, the I-90 westbound ramp to I-77 southbound is restricted as the ramp over E. 14th St. is rebuilt. The E. 21st Street ramp to I-77 southbound is closed through approximately 2016 and motorists are detoured via Carnegie Ave. to E. 14th or E. 22nd Streets where they may enter Orange Ave. and I-77 southbound. University Rd. is permanently closed along the west bank of the Cuyahoga River and motorists are rerouted via Scranton Rd. and Fairfield Ave. Tentative completion date: fall 2013.
**Crews on behalf of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District work to relocate an existing interceptor sewer in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. Both Abbey Ave. between W. 12th St. and W. 13th St. and W. 11th St. between University Rd. and Abbey Ave. are closed to vehicular traffic until the summer of 2011. In addition, W. 14th St., just south of Fairfield Ave., is restricted until mid-May 2011. For more information, please contact NEORSD at 216.881.6600.
Crews work to place sub-decking on the existing Innerbelt Bridge over Commercial Road, Broadway Ave. and vicinity. On Monday, March 21 crews will close multiple lanes of Broadway Ave./Ontario St. in the southeast (outbound) direction beneath the existing I-90 Innerbelt Bridge from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Overnight Tuesday, March 22, crews will close multiple lanes of Broadway Ave./Ontario St. in the northwest direction (inbound) in the same location from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Through approximately March 18, crews will perform intermittent lane closures on Commercial Road below the existing bridge. Flaggers will assist traffic. On I-90, heavy truck traffic is no longer restricted, however it is suggested that trucks in the eastbound direction remain detoured via I-490 eastbound and I-77 northbound in order to increase traffic flow efficiencies. Steel repairs continue. Tentative completion date: May 15, 2011.
