CLEVELAND — Beginning Friday at 6:00 a.m., construction crews will implement a long-term ramp closure as part of the Innerbelt Bridge project.

For drivers traveling from E. 55th Street towards downtown, the I-490 west ramp to I-77 north will be closed. A detour will be posted using W. 7th Street.

The ramp will remain closed until the fall of 2016 when the eastbound Innerbelt Bridge is complete.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says there were be several changes, some temporary changes and some long-term changes, as crews prepare to complete the new westbound Innerbelt Bridge.

Drivers are advised to “Opt for the Alternate!” and use I-490 and I-77. Crews will add a lane in each direction to help accommodate traffic. Access to all downtown exits will be maintained.
