I-77 accident

CLEVELAND — I-90 eastbound and I-71 northbound were a mess after multiple crashes Friday morning. As of 8:13 a.m., the roads were beginning to clear and delay times were going down.

There was a muti-car crash near the I-77/I-90 merge at about 6:30 a.m. that caused delays and closed all but the left-most lane on I-90.

Then, another crash near the I-90/I-71 merge before the bridge caused more back-ups on I-90 eastbound coming from the left and I-71 northbound coming in from the top. It appears that crash involved four cars.

Then, there was another crash on I-90 eastbound near W. 25th St. at about 7:15 a.m.

After significant delays earlier Friday morning, as of 8:15 a.m., ODOT was estimating a travel delay of about 7 minutes on I-90 eastbound and 6 minutes on I-71 northbound.
