CLEVELAND — If you plan on driving anytime in the next two years, here's a heads up on the closure of a local interstate.

Starting May 29, the Ohio Department of Transportation will close I-490 between East 55th Street and I-77 until May 2021.

ODOT created the specific detours listed below:

I-77 northbound detour to East 55th Street northbound:

Exit at East 22nd Street/East 14th Street
Keep left onto East 14th Street
Keep right onto East 18th Street
Turn right on Carnegie Avenue to East 55th Street

I-77 northbound detour to East 55th Street southbound:
Exit at Woodland Avenue/East 30th Street
Keep right onto Woodland Avenue to East 55th Street

I-77 southbound detour to East 55th Street:

Exit at Woodland Avenue/East 30th Street
Keep left onto Woodland Avenue to East 55th Street

East 55th Street detour to I-490 westbound:

West on Woodland Ave to East 30th Street
Keep left and merge onto Orange Avenue
Keep right, merge onto I-77 southbound

This closure will allow crews to work on Section 3 of the Opportunity Corridor Project , which will connect East 55th Street at I-490 to East 105th Street in University Circle.
