Each new bridge will carries 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.
The Trumbull Corporation, The Great Lakes Construction Company, & The Ruhlin Company (TGR) along with designer URS Corporation will perform the demolition of the existing 1959 Innerbelt Bridge and construct a new eastbound George V. Voinovich Bridge in its place. Learn more here.
During the fall of 2014, crews worked to reconfigured access for downtown motorists bound for I-77. For more information on these changes, click here.
