Traffic Impact for Saturday's Lake Erie Monsters Game at The Q

Feb 26, 2015

A special note for those bound for Downtown Cleveland: Downtown Cleveland traffic patterns have changed for some motorists entering and exiting downtown Cleveland, but don’t let changes stop you from enjoying ALL Cleveland has to offer. Those attending Downtown events are encouraged to leave the driving to someone else and use public transportation or Ride RTA!  Motorists are advised to follow all posted signage and allow for extra travel time to reach, and depart, Downtown venues.

  • On Saturday, February 28 I-90 eastbound (inbound) over the GVV Bridge will be closed.  Motorists traveling from the west side via I-90 or from the south via I-71 will be instead detour via I-490 east to I-77 north.  Motorists should use Ontario Street to access Downtown venues. Visit for more!   
  • If you are driving and use I-77 south to exit Downtown you will also notice changes as the East 9th and Ontario Street ramps to I-77 south have been permanently relocated.  The change was necessary to accommodate ODOT’s Cleveland Innerbelt Modernization Plan and meet current legal standards for roadway safety and ramp spacing.  Outbound I-77 traffic now uses a wider, more attractive boulevard along Orange Avenue. The E 14th Street entrance to I-77 south has been improved and Broadway Avenue also provides a great alternate to reach I-77.  For a map of alternate routes, please click here.
