Cleveland and Cuyahoga County are home to some of the most dangerous roads in the entire state, according to traffic crash data analyzed by a local law firm.

The intersection of I-77 and I-90 in Cleveland is the most dangerous stretch of road, not only in Cleveland but the entire state, according to the firm of Kisling, Nestico, and Redick. Its analysis of Ohio Department of Transportation Highway Safety Improvement Priority List data shows an average of 305 crashes occurred at that location between 2014 and 2016 per year.

  • No. 3 in the state is I-271 just south of Fairmount Boulevard, with an average of 182 crashes between 2014 and 2016 per year.
  • No. 6 in Ohio is I-271 and CR-23 (Cedar Road). 
  • The 12th-worst in the state is I-90, just east of Bratenhal Road. 
  • Rounding out the list at No. 13 overall for Ohio is I-90 and SR-10 (Lorain Avenue).

“We hope that by highlighting Cleveland’s most dangerous roads we can encourage drivers to be safe not only on these roads, but on all roads at all times,” KNR said in a statement.
