The Cleveland Clinic and the local McDonald's probably don't agree on trans fats, but they've found a common enemy in ODOT's inner belt plan. Local business owners, planners and council members have concerns about a proposal for the inner belt that would close off heavily used key downtown exits. The Ohio Department of Transportation says the design will help reduce accidents. Join the debate Monday morning at nine on The Sound of Ideas.
