Troubled Bridge Over Water


Predicting Cleveland traffic patterns just got easier - but navigating through town will be much tougher if the busiest bridge in the region is taken off the grid for two years.
That's the Ohio Department of Transportation's new proposal, rebuilding the I-90 bridge over the Cuyahoga River, instead of building a new span alongside.
Local government leaders and business owners say that's the last thing the downtown economy needs and the plan would hit truckers with more fuel costs due to long-term detours.
ODOT's project director joins us to explain, along with Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, among others.
We'll bridge the conversation gap Monday morning at 9 on 90.3.Craig Hebebrand, Project Manager for the Inner Belt, Ohio Department of Transportation
