Innerbelt Modernization Plan

Project Status

  1. Proposed

  2. In Development

  3. Pre-construction

  4. Construction

  5. Completion

The Cleveland Innerbelt Modernization Plan is focused on improving safety, reducing congestion and traffic delays, and modernizing interstate travel along I-71, I-77 and I-90 through downtown Cleveland. This investment by the State of Ohio will rehabilitate and reconstruct about five miles of interstate roadways - including construction of two, new bridges to carry I-90 traffic - and address operational, design, safety and access shortcomings that severely impact the ability of the Innerbelt freeway system to meet the transportation needs of northeast Ohio.
