Attention I-77 Motorists: During the weekend of March 15 and 16, I-77 will closed in its entirety near I-480 in the city of Independence, south of downtown Cleveland.  Detours will be clearly posted, however motorists traveling from points south along I-77 are encouraged to allow extra travel time to reach The Q on March 15 and 16.  For additional details, including detours, click here.

Friday, March 14 through Monday, March 17

On Friday, March 14 at 7 p.m. crews will close all lanes of I-77 north and southbound between I-480 and SR 21 until 6 a.m. Monday, March 17 in order to implement the phase one traffic configuration. Motorists will be detoured via SR 176 and I-490. All traffic leaving downtown Cleveland via I-77 southbound will be detoured via I-490 westbound to SR 176 southbound.

Also during this weekend closure, on Friday at 7 p.m., the I-77 southbound ramp to I-480 westbound and the I-480 eastbound ramp to I-77 northbound will close until early-November 2014. I-77 southbound motorists will be detoured via I-490 westbound to SR 176 southbound to I-480 westbound. I-480 eastbound motorists will be detoured via SR 176 northbound to I-490 eastbound to I-77. See videos below for additional detour information.

The I-480 westbound ramp to I-77 northbound will be reduced to one lane to help improve traffic flow on I-77. Motorists will be encouraged to use SR 176 northbound to I-490 eastbound to I-77 to avoid any congestion on this ramp. The I-77 southbound ramp to I-480 eastbound will also be reduced to one lane due to the contraflow lane configuration. These lane restrictions will be in place from March 14 to late-fall.
