Project to Repair Surface of I-480 East Bridge over the Rocky River
Clague Road on-ramp to I-480 east will also be closed this weekend
CLEVELAND (Monday, September 28, 2015) – This weekend crews on behalf of ODOT will begin a project to repair the driving surface of the 1,536 foot-long bridge which carries I-480 east over the Rocky River between Clague and Grayton Roads. The two middle lanes are being resurfaced with a microsilica concrete mix which is more durable, reduces cracking, improves durability and increases strength.
Beginning Friday evening, multiple lanes will close on I-480 east between Clague and Grayton Roads from 7 p.m. Friday thru 6 a.m. Monday, October 2-5. In addition, the Clague Road on-ramp to I-480 east will also be closed. Motorists should use Brookpark Road to Grayton Road instead. Motorists who use I-480 east are advised to allow extra travel time during this work and prepare for slow-downs. All work is weather dependent.
The same closures are expected to repeat during the weekend of October 9-12. Details will be forthcoming. The westbound lanes of I-480 will be unaffected by this work.
As part of the same construction contract, crews are also repairing the driving surface of the I-71 north bridge over the Jennings Freeway (SR 176) near MetroHealth and Steelyard Commons. Work associated with both projects is expected to be complete this fall.
Project: Bridge deck repair and overlay at two locations including I-480 east over the Rocky River between Clague and Grayton Roads; and I-71 north over the Jennings Freeway near MetroHealth and Steelyard Commons.
Contractor: The Great Lakes Construction Company
Bid Amount: $3,630,253.87
