West 25th Street Exit Ramp from I-90 East to Close Next Week
CLEVELAND (Friday, April 3, 2015) – As part of a safety improvement project to help improve the flow of traffic for westside commuters, the West 25th Street exit ramp from I-90 east will soon close temporarily.
Weather permitting, overnight Friday, April 10 crews will close multiple lanes on I-90 east (inbound) near West 25th Street from 7:30 p.m. to noon Saturday, April 11 in order to shift traffic in the vicinity. Upon reopening on Saturday, motorists should be alert for lanes shifted toward the median. The West 25th Street exit ramp from I-90 east will also be closed until about June 22.**
Work times are coordinated to allow event traffic to enter Downtown Cleveland uninterrupted. Traffic exiting Downtown will not be impacted. The night of Saturday, April 11 will be used as a “back-up” should inclement weather hinder operations the night of April 10.
During the West 25th Street ramp closure, motorists who wish to access locations along West 25th Street north of I-90 – including the West Side Market and other Ohio City destinations – should use West 41st Street to Lorain Avenue.
Motorists who wish to access locations along West 25th Street south of I-90 – including MetroHealth Medical Center and the Clark-Fulton & Brooklyn Centre Neighborhoods – should use West 44th Street to Clark Avenue. Motorists bound for Scranton Avenue should use the same detour.
Occasional off-peak, daytime lane closures are anticipated as the project moves forward. To learn more about the safety improvement project, please click here.
