In The Region:

Plans for part two of Cleveland’s Innerbelt bridge project are being finalized as the list of contractors is narrowed. 

At a public meeting Tuesday in Tremont, officials with the Ohio Department of Transportation and local community groups will review landscaping details for the second span of the I-90 Innerbelt bridge.

The $330 million project is the largest in the state’s history.  ODOT spokeswoman Jocelynn Clemings says it also will be a landmark for the city.

“Certainly there is a lot of community and civic interest in this project not just here in Cleveland but around the state and hopefully around the nation.  We’re hopeful that when folks come to Cleveland they see all the work that’s taking place here and they want to come back, or they see it’s a great place to travel or do business.”   

Construction of the first Innerbelt bridge is expected to wrap-up in October.  Chicago-based Walsh Construction is building the first Innerbelt bridge and is one of four design and construction teams competing for the second contract.  ODOT will narrow that list to three on February 1st, and announce the winning contractor this summer. 

The other firms vying for the second bridge contract are Kokosing Construction / Michael Baker design; Trumbell Corp., Great Lakes Construction, and Ruhlin Company / URS Corp. design; and C.J. Mahan Construction and OHL USA, Inc. with Janssen & Spaans Engineering design.
