I-90 and Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. Interchange - Revised 8/22/19

Location: I-90: Exit 177 (Martin Luther King Jr. Drive)

Alert in effect: Monday, August 26 until further notice

**Revised project start date**

Beginning Monday, August 26th, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) will begin work on the exit ramps from I-90 to Martin Luther King Jr Drive (Exit 177). Traffic on both the eastbound and westbound exit ramps will be maintained. All lanes on ramps will remain open, and traffic will be shifted with construction. There will be overnight ramp closures (between 8:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.) towards the end of the project for paving work.

Pedestrian and bicycle traffic on Martin Luther King Jr Drive will be maintained throughout the project with temporary curb ramps and barricades when necessary.

Project improvements include:

  • Improvements at the exit ramps to improve traffic flow off I-90 to MLK Jr. Drive
  • New traffic signals at the end of both exit ramps
  • A major improvement to the Harrison Dillard bikeway connecting the Cultural Gardens to the Lakefront Bikeway at Gordon Park
  • Sidewalk repair along MLK

Delays at the exit ramps are expected during construction. Motorists are encouraged to take the E 72nd exit from I-90 (Exit 175) during peak commute times to avoid delay.

Estimated project completion is mid-July 2020.
