The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) wants drivers to know that a stretch of Interstate 490, between East 55th Street and I-77, will be closed later this month. The shutdown will alow for construction on the third and final phase of the $306 million Cleveland Opportunity Corridor project.

Julie Meyer, ODOT's project manager for the Opportunity Corridor, said that she knows the closure will be challenging for drivers at first, but the agency has worked with the City of Cleveland to identify detour routes.

NORTHEAST OHIO REGIONALS SEWER DISTRICT

It’s been an eventful summer for Cleveland’s 25-year, $3 billion sewer project, as the city opened its first overflow tunnel and begins work on a new extension.

Project Clean Lake” started in 2011 to construct seven tunnels under the city that would hold sewage until it can be treated, instead of going directly into Lake Erie.  The goal is to cut the untreated sewage flowing into the lake from 4.5 billion gallons to a 500,000 gallons.

MARCH FOR SCIENCE CLEVELAND

Science enthusiasts are planning a March for Science in Cleveland on Saturday.

Organizers say it’s a celebration of science and a call to support the scientific community. Case Western Reserve University biologist Patricia Princehouse is one of the organizers.

She said recent attempts by the federal government to censor, or misrepresent findings concerning climate change, endangered species, and other issues amount to an attack on science.

That corridor would arc through the southern portion of the east side, from I-490 to University Circle.

Planning director Freddy Collier and neighborhood development groups presented broad overviews of the plans.
