The Cleveland Innerbelt Modernization Plan is focused on improving safety, reducing congestion and traffic delays, and modernizing interstate travel along I-71, I-77 and I-90 through Downtown Cleveland. This investment by the State of Ohio will rehabilitate and reconstruct about five miles of interstate roadways - including construction of two, new bridges to carry I-90 traffic - and address operational, design, safety and access shortcomings that severely impact the ability of the Innerbelt Freeway system to meet the transportation needs of Northeast Ohio.
 

 CCG6A - I-77 over I-490

 

Through fall 2019, all lanes of I-77 north and southbound over I-490 will be shifted in order to accommodate bridge demolition and construction operations.

In addition, the Orange Avenue entrance ramp to I-77 southbound is reduced to one lane in order to accommodate bridge demolition and construction operations through fall 2019.
 
Overnight this winter, when weather permits, crews will temporarily close various lanes on I-77 and I-490 as well as ramps at the I-77/I-490 interchange in order to accomodate demolition operations. Please see the traffic impacts page for updated information about this work.

The entire project will widen and replace the I-77 bridge over I-490.
