Attention Motorists:  As they say in Ireland, “Get to the parade early or you’ll miss all the good candy.”  Okay, maybe they don’t say that, but this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is sure to draw a huge crowd in downtown Cleveland.  Construction won’t impact your trip downtown this weekend, but motorists are encouraged to ride RTA and avoid drinking and driving.  Have a safe St. Patrick’s!  Next week’s impacts are below:
Gateway Impacts:
·        Monday and Tuesday, March 19-20, inbound Ontario will be closed as it approaches I-90. The Ontario exit from I-90 east will remain open. Motorists on Orange/Ontario will be detoured onto E 14th to Carnegie to Ontario. Monday the closure will be in place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday the closure will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
·        Each night Monday through Thursday, March 19-22, the intersection of Carnegie and Ontario will have lane restrictions from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m., as crews install temporary traffic signals in preparation for the next phase of construction. Motorists will be able to travel through the intersection, but should be alert for stopped traffic and expect delays.
·        The Carnegie access lane to the E 9th entrance ramp to I-90 west will remain closed for up to a month. Click here for location information.
Tremont Impacts:
·        Kenilworth Avenue will reopen for the weekend by 5 p.m. today Friday, March 16.  On Monday, March 19, Kenilworth will again close under I-90 and will remain closed through Friday, March 30.
