I-90 closures?

Post by jessbullock » Tue Nov 13, 2012 2:50 pm

Hey all,
I was hoping someone a little more local could help me out.
I was just printing off my documents for the big trip, and google maps is telling me that there are still closures on the I-90. a quick search revealed info on closures this past weekend, but I'm seeing a lot of different dates and rescheduling (yay construction).

I'm basically taking the I-90 from Buffalo to Cleveland, so an unexpected closure would really cramp my style :)

Has anyone else looked into this?

Hi Jesse,

If you have AAA or know someone that does, they can get you an updated list of all construction here... some of these closures you may be seeing are weekend only closures. Or borrow a friends GPS with Traffic reports built-in...

An alternate route may be heading south to I-480 or the Ohio Turnpike as soon as you can - from I-90. The hotel is on the southwest side of the Cleveland suburbs so avoiding downtown would be a great idea. There is plenty of construction with a new set of bridges being built from one side of town to the other - downtown so many roads and entrances/exits are closed or detoured.

You may want to take:
I-90 W to
I-271 S to (this takes you south just east of Cleveland)
I-480 W to
I-71 S to
the hotel

I hope this helps, Dan

Thanks Dan! I didn't even think of CAA/AAA, I will check them out!

I drive to buffalo weekly. Was there yesterday.

Take 1-90 Buffalo, Ny to route 271 south in Willougby, Oh. I believe this is around the 190 or 180 mile marker. 3 hours from the Buffalo toll gate.
You will come accorss Construction just after Hamburg for 10 miles, Erie (peach street exit 29?) for 3 miles, at the Ohio border for 15 miles and at exit 206 for 5 miles. Most of this is still 2 lane.

Take 271 South to 480 west (toledo) - 10 miles or so. (your going to bypass Cleveland's I-90 construction)

Take 480 west to 71 south - about 15 to 20 miles (5 miles or so after bridge) (near airport, after west 150 exit)

Take 71 south to route 82 east --- Hotel exit. I believe this is also 5 miles down, maybe the 4th or 5th exit after 480.

It should take you another hour to reach the hotel after turning on to 271 south.

Clevelands rush hour starts around 4 to 4:30 on 480 and 71 and lasts to 6:00.
The future is what you plan for, life is what you get, enjoy it.
