Traffic alert: Innerbelt bridge closed through Monday

CLEVELAND -- The Ohio Department of Transportation says Interstate 90 eastbound and westbound over the Innerbelt bridge will be closed this weekend.

All drivers will instead be detoured via Interstate 490 and Interstate 77. This closure will be in place from 8 p.m. Friday, June 6, through 6 a.m. Monday, June 9.

RTA users: So that bridge construction crews may perform work over the RTA tracks, RTA is replacing all rail service east of Tower City with shuttle buses this weekend and next weekend.

Waterfront Line service will run approximately every 30 minutes. West Side Red Line service times are also impacted, please refer to the temporary timetable, which can be found here. For more information, call the RTAnswerline at (216) 621-9500.

The bridge and the surrounding area are shut down for concrete work: moving and repairing the barriers that separate traffic, and finishing pavement on the overpass at Starkweather Avenue in Tremont.

With 140,000 daily drivers, road blocks are always inconvenient. But ODOT is hoping most can see this as temporary trouble on the road to two new, safe bridges.

"It's an improvement, and its safer so I'm happy about that," said driver Willa Sparks.
