CLEVELAND — A portion of I-90 eastbound in Cleveland is closed due to sign work on Thursday afternoon.
According to the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), traffic is being routed off I-90 at E. 200th St. and returning to I-90 at E. 222nd St. Drivers are asked to use an alternate route if available.
ODOT says that the sign being repaired was damaged in a crash. It was first spotted as crews were checking on a guardrail that was damaged in the same crash.
"ODOT crews were checking guardrail that had been damaged in a crash," ODOT said in a statement to 3News. "While on site, they noticed an overhead sign support had also been damaged in the crash. Out of an abundance of caution, crews decided to close the interstate and immediately remove the damaged support."
