ODOT Introduces Tours of the Inner Belt Bridge Construction


  • ODOT
Cleveland is filled with orange cones and road blocks for what feels like 364 days of the year. Sometimes it's hard to have patience to realize the good things to come. But then things start rounding into shape and you have a sense of relief that the end of the cones is near.

Take the new Inner Belt bridge for instance. Long in the works. Many headaches. More detours.

But there it almost is in its entirety. And now you can get a closer look for yourself.

The Ohio Department of Transportation began tours of the not-yet-quite-finished Inner Belt Bridge today. The tours will run through September;  the next one is May 27. ODOT will hold two tours a month (they're free, and damn straight they should be) and each tour only has 20 spots available.

If all goes according to plan, the bridge will be completely finished just as the last tour wraps up.

Tour tickets are available online.
