Innerbelt Plan Home              Newsroom              Project History              George V. Voinovich Bridge
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.
