They say knowing is half the battle, and when it comes to navigating Cleveland traffic, the same sentiment certainly applies. Whether they be short term or long term projects, staying up to date on current and future road closures can mean the difference between an easy morning commute and being stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.

I-490 is currently closed between East 55th and I-77 from now through May of 2021 while construction crews work on Section 3 of the Opportunity Corridor.
West 45th Ramp Closure
The West 45th Street ramp for the West Shoreway is closed now and for the next 5 months while the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District continues its construction of the Westerly Storage Tunnel.

I-90 and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Interchange Improvements
On July 22, 2019, construction is scheduled to begin for the reconfiguration of the I-90 Interchange at MLK Jr. Drive. Existing traffic patterns will be maintained during the initial stages of construction. The project will improve traffic flow and reduce crashes by extending two southbound lanes on MLK Jr. Drive to East 88th Street
Coit Road Resurfacing and Street Improvements Update
On July 29, 2019, a new traffic pattern will be implemented on Coit Road from Kirby Avenue to Saint Clair Avenue. Construction will be performed on one half of the road at a time, allowing eastbound traffic to use the open half of the road. Westbound traffic will be detoured at Saint Clair Avenue. The detour follows Saint Clair Avenue to Eddy Road to Kirby Avenue and then back to Coit Road.
Thanks to Mayor Frank Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, there are many road improvements happening in our neighborhoods. Check out Straight From City Hall for daily information.
