Crews prepare to begin construction of a new Innerbelt Bridge which will eventually carry westbound traffic. During the early morning hours of Friday, March 18 crews will close the I-77 northbound ramp to I-90 eastbound from 1 a.m. until 5 a.m. in order to shift traffic in the vicinity. Crews will also perform short, intermittent closures of the same ramp overnight Friday until approximately 7 a.m. Saturday morning. Motorists will be detoured via E. 9th St. to Superior Ave. where they may reenter I-90 eastbound. 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.
