Innerbelt Bridge

  Stakeholder groups which include prominent local advocates have met numerous times since the spring of 2006 in order to prescribe important aesthetic elements to the new bridge including scenic overlooks, open railings, new streetscapes and revamped overpasses and ramps.  In December 2010, Cleveland residents were polled on very specific elements – including pier treatments, fence and lighting options, retaining wall materials and more – in order to determine a public preference for each specific element.  Those choices are listed in the column below and to the left.  Public preferences were presented to the City of Cleveland and approved on January 7, 2011.
