Innerbelt Bridge Plan Eastern Touchdown Point
Innerbelt Bridge Plan Eastern Touchdown Point

The Cleveland Innerbelt Bridge is one of the most traveled in Ohio. Unfortunately, it needs a lot of work and after numerous years of study, things are about to start trucking forward. The idea is to improve safety, reduce congestion and modernize interstate travel along I-71, I-77 and I-90 through Downtown Cleveland. It's one of the largest Ohio transportation projects ever undertaken. Three design firms will be selected in March to draft proposals for the bridge section. Some critics say the initial design outlines don't do enough to advance the region and meet the surrounding communities' needs. Join host Regina Brett for an update on the Inner Belt Plan, Friday morning at 9 on 90.3.
