Ohio Department of Transportation—Cleveland Innerbelt-George V. Voinovich Bridge

The Ohio Department of Transportation replaced the 1950s Innerbelt Bridge with two new structures to carry I-90 over the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland. The westbound bridge opened in 2013 and carried bi-directional traffic until the substantial completion of the eastbound structure in 2016. In addition to building the eastbound structure, the $279 million design-build project included demolishing the old bridge, various reconstructions of existing highway and local streets in and around Cleveland’s central business district and the Tremont neighborhood, construction of pedestrian/bicycle paths on either side of the river, adding a fish habitat in the river, adding a community park and incorporated aesthetic elements such as a decorative retaining wall and ornamental lighting. The project allows safer, more efficient movement in and out of the city.Innerbelt_finished bridge-no paint image
