LAKE COUNTY -- Drivers coming in from Mentor, Painesville, Concord, all the way to Madison -- we heard you.

"it's bumper-to-bumper. There are no lights."

"it's uncalled for. It's down to one single lane and when a semi comes by you, it'll scare you."

We heard how you were fed up and frustrated about this construction on I-90 East and West in Lake County, fed up with single lanes with barely any shoulder, and the fact that winter is here.

So we took your concerns straight to The Ohio Department of Transportation for answers.

"I know it's been an inconvenience, but there is light at the end of the tunnel," says ODOT spokesperson Amanda McFarland.

McFarland says they are a couple of weeks behind where they'd like to be, and the snow came a bit sooner than they had expected.

"It's unfortunate. They push it as far as they can to get as much as they can done in one year," says McFarland.

But, she says, you'll be glad to know the concrete is now done.

All that's left is the striping.

So as soon as we see 3 to 4 dry days and temperatures above 30,° you can expect these narrow lanes and headaches to disappear.

"And this kind of work won't have to be done for many years," says McFarland.

McFarland says ODOT has worked to keep this construction as smooth as possible for you by maintaining the normal number of lanes.

And it will all be over by the Fall of 2014.
