I-90 Restrictions Lifted After Safety Upgrades
LAKE COUNTY, Ohio — Restrictions were lifted from a stretch of I-90 where ODOT implemented safety upgrades following recent pileups.
The right lane of I-90 eastbound between Morely Road and SR 44 and the I-90 eastbound exit ramp to SR 44 were closed for several hours Tuesday.
ODOT planned to repair a guardrail and adjust a barrier wall there.
Construction barrels were already placed on the shoulder along the stretch of I-90 that has been problematic and additional barrels with lights will be added.
ODOT said a three-foot temporary concrete shoulder will also be constructed.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol plans to increase patrols to regulate drivers’ speed in the work zone.
Radar speed trailers will also be used to alert drivers to their speed.
Several people were hurt and dozens of cars were damaged in a Christmas Eve crash on I-90 near Vrooman Road. Two separate accidents happened the following Friday near the same area, resulting in more injuries and damage.
