Innerbelt Update
Attention Downtown Motorists: Beginning the week of June 4, crews will implement a one-lane closure on outbound Ontario Street approaching I-90/I-77.  A dedicated access lane will be maintained to both I-90 west and I-77 south as well as through to Broadway/Orange.  This allows the team to perform removal of the existing “Ontario Pointe” triangle with only minimal disruptions to Ontario and while maintaining access to I-90 west.  Additionally, the angled street formerly leading to Central Viaduct Way will be permanently closed at that time.  For more information on work at the intersection of Carnegie and Ontario, click here.
Also, be on the lookout for overnight closures at E 9th Street on both Tuesday and Wednesday nights!  Additional impacts to traffic – and details on work at E 9th Street – for the coming week are below:
Gateway Impacts:
§   Each night Tuesday and Wednesday, May 29-30, E 9th Street under I-90, the E 9th Street ramp to I-77 south and the ramp from I-90 east to E 9th Street will each be closed from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. as crews erect girders for the new I-90 west bridge over E 9th Street.  Detours will be posted.  Access from southbound E 9th Street to I-90 west will remain open for departing Tribe fans after Tuesday’s game!
§   Tuesday through Friday, May 29-June 1, the ramp from I-90 west to I-77 south will have a lane restriction from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.

Tremont Impacts:
§   Abbey Avenue is reduced to a single lane of westbound traffic.  Eastbound Abbey motorists are detoured over the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge and onto I-90 west toward Tremont where they may then exit onto W 14th Street.  For more information on these improvements – including a map of the detour – click here.
