Eastbound George Voinovich Bridge officially opens to traffic

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- This morning's commute will be a little different for Cleveland drivers.

The new eastbound Innerbelt Bridge is officially open to traffic. Only the left two lanes are open for now.

The new westbound bridge opened about three years ago. Since then, all traffic has used that side, while the second bridge was built.  Both spans were constructed to replace a decaying bridge originally built in 1959.

Even though two of the eastbound lanes on the bridge will be open on Monday, it will still be several weeks before some of the on and off ramps can be used.

ODOT said by the end of October, each bridge will carry five lanes of traffic in both directions and all ramps will be open.
