 Project Overview


 We've Built Two New Bridges


Each new bridge will carry five lanes of traffic - one more than the 1950's-era bridge they replace! Major construction on both birdges bridges is complete and both are open to traffic.  Minor operations remain on the eastbound structure and all work should be complete in the spring of 2017.

By constructing two bridges, ODOT was able to maintain traffic on I-90 – a vital link into Downtown Cleveland - during construction and into the future when a new bridge deck is necessary.
