CLEVELAND - Parts of I-77 will be closed over the weekend, the Ohio Department of Transportation announced Monday. The closures will take place so crews can install bridge concrete beams at Broadway Avenue and steel bridge beams at the SR 21 ramp.
Closures will start at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 20 and continue through Monday, July 23. Limited local access will be maintained on I-77 between I-490 and I-480 throughout the weekend.
The closures over the weekend will include, ODOT says:
I-77 northbound at I-480. Motorists will be detoured via I-480 west to SR 176 north to I-490 east to I-77 north.
I-77 southbound at I-490. Motorists will be detoured via I-490 west to SR 176 south to I-480 east to I-77 south.
