The new Innerbelt Bridge has been under construction for months, but in two weeks, some drivers will finally get to use it.
According to ODOT, the Ontario and E. 9th Street on-ramps will open November 9.
Those aren’t the only changes for that day though; there will be some closures too. The E. 14th Street on-ramp to I-90 west and the E. 21st Street on-ramp to I-77 south will be closed. Both ramps are expected to remain closed throughout the construction of the second Innerbelt Bridge, which is not scheduled to be finished until late 2016.
“It’s one of those things you can’t do anything about. I mean, you can sit in your truck and be mad, but that’s not going to help anything. Yeah, it doesn’t really bother me,” said Joseph Morrison, who drives trucks for a living.
Morrison said while the construction has been inconvenient, he’s learned to just deal with it.
“You’ve got the traffic issues. It’s obviously backed up at certain times of the day. If you catch it at the wrong time, it’s like a parking lot. Other than that, it thins out and it’s passable. But, I’m sure it’ll be better once it opens,” Morrison said.
