About:
ODOT – Ohio's transportation agency – is in the midst of replacing the 1959 Innerbelt Bridge with two, nearly identical spans, named in honor of statesman George V. Voinovich. The first of the pair is now open and temporarily carrying traffic in both directions until completion of the second new bridge. 

Description:
The George V. Voinovich Bridge is a vital link into downtown Cleveland, spanning the Cuyahoga River on Interstate 90. Serving 140,000 motorists each day, it provides access to jobs, sports complexes, restaurants and more.

Replacement of the bridge is vital to the success of moving people in and out of downtown Cleveland now and in the future. It will enhance capacity, bolster our economy and ensure the safety of motorists.

Mission:
The Cleveland Innerbelt Modernization Plan is a seven-phase plan focused on improving safety, reducing congestion and traffic delays, and modernizing interstate travel through downtown Cleveland. More than just construction of the new bridges, this investment by the State of Ohio will rehabilitate and reconstruct about five miles of interstate roadways and address operational, design, safety and access shortcomings that severely impact the ability of the system to meet the needs of Northeast Ohio.
