Driving into Cleveland Friday? ODOT says leave extra early or stay home

In The Region:

Drivers heading into downtown Cleveland should plan to leave extra early Friday morning.

The Ohio Department of Transportation will close I-90 Eastbound between I-77 and I-490 over the Innerbelt Bridge Thursday at 9 a.m. That stretch will be closed until Monday morning at the latest.

ODOT spokeswoman Jocelynn Clemings says traffic will be moved to the new Innerbelt Bridge Monday and will follow that configuration until 2016 while a second new bridge is constructed.

Clemings says ODOT recommends drivers work from home or ride RTA Friday if possible. Those who must travel I-90 East around rush hour should consider leaving earlier or taking a detour to avoid the worst traffic.

“There are several city street-level roadways that we think serve as great alternate routes," Clemings says. "Using West 25th Street to Lorain Avenue or Detroit Avenue is a good alternative if you’re coming from the South or from the West. If you’re coming from the Southeast, using Broadway or Woodland are also good routes to get you into downtown.”

Additionally, the same stretch of I-90 westbound lanes will close from 7 p.m. Thursday (today) to 6 a.m. Friday and from 8 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday.
