Innerbelt Bridge Access for Everyone

The Ohio Department of Transportation plans to build a new, $450 million Interstate 90 bridge through downtown Cleveland. Although all of us should be able to use it, the existing plans do not include pedestrian and cyclist access. Your help is needed to change this.

Thirty highway bridges across the U.S. have safe and attractive bike and pedestrian amenities on them. It can happen in Cleveland with your input.

Let your public officials know you support access for all on the new bridge. Here are four ways you can help:
  1. Learn more about the issue, including important public hearings and who to contact, by visiting:
  2. Send your comments in support to and they'll be forwarded to decision-makers.
  3. Call ODOT Innerbelt Project Manager Craig Hebebrand at 216-581-2100.
  4. Attend the rally this Sunday Dec. 6 from 2:00 to 4:00pm. It begins in Tremont, and will include riding various suggested bike routes to downtown and back, followed by discussions and refreshments. More details...
