Slope repairs to close multiple ramps
October 20, 2008, 4:09 PM, Garfield Heights, OH… Beginning Wednesday, October 22, following the morning rush hour, crews will close both the E. 14th Street and E. 21st Street ramps to I-77 southbound in order to perform slope and catch basin repairs. Crews will also close the left lane of the I-90 westbound ramp to I-77 southbound. One lane will remain open for access.
East 14th and 21st Street traffic may detour via Orange Avenue southbound to I-77 southbound.
The East 14th and 21st Street ramps as well as the left lane of the I-90 westbound ramp to I-77 southbound will remain closed for approximately two weeks as repairs are made. Slope issues have undermined the shoulder at the junction of the I-90 westbound to I-77 southbound ramp and I-77 northbound to I-90 westbound ramp.
The above mentioned ramps are critical routes while lanes are closed on the I-90 Innerbelt Bridge, therefore, ODOT has accelerated the sale and construction of this project.
The Ontario Street, E. 9th Street, E. 14th Street & I-77 northbound ramps to I-90 westbound and Ontario Street ramp to I-77 southbound remain closed following inspection of the I-90 Innerbelt Bridge.
All dates and times are approximate and weather dependent.
