State Route 2 Eastbound Ramp to Edgewater Park Temporary Closure
Ramp closure necessary for West 73rd Street Extension and Lakefront West rebuild
GARFIELD HEIGHTS (Thursday, July 3, 2014) – The State Route 2 eastbound exit ramp to Edgewater Park is scheduled to close at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 and will reopen late-November, 2014. The closure is part of the Ohio Department of Transportation’s West 73rd Street Extension project and is necessary to construct the ramp on a new alignment.
Motorists will detour via the West 45th Street exit ramp to Detroit Avenue to West 49th Street to Herman Avenue to SR 2 westbound.
In 2015, the ramp will be closed again from October through December.
The ramp closure allows ODOT and the contractor to expedite the work and overall reduce the total amount of time the ramp will be closed from one year to approximately eight to 10 months.
The Lakefront West Project is working to connect Cleveland's west side neighborhoods with the lakefront by creating multi-modal connections along the West Shoreway between West Boulevard and the Main Avenue Bridge. The Lakefront West Project will increase access to Lake Erie, improve green space, biking and pedestrian facilities, increase development potential and simplify connections along the now limited-access freeway.
