The City of Westlake is proposing to complete the I-90/SR 252 (Columbia Road) Interchange Reconfiguration by reconstructing the westbound side of the interchange. The eastbound side was reconstructed in 2017 as project CUY-90-3.56, PID 88665. This project (CUY-90-3.56 WB, PID) will fulfill the city's commitment to complete the reconstruction of the entire interchange.
The proposed project consists of consolidating traffic and reconfiguring intersections within the interchange. The intersection of Sperry Road/SR 252 would be reconfigured and the westbound I-90 exit ramp to northbound SR 252 would be removed. Traffic would then be combined on loop ramp for the westbound I-90 exit to southbound SR 252. The loop ramp will be widened to two lanes and will intersect SR 252 opposite of Sperry Road. This reconfiguration will combine two closely-placed signalized intersections into one.
Due to increased traffic volumes for the entrance ramp from northbound SR 252 to the westbound I-90 entrance ramp, a dual left turn lane will be provided and the entrance ramp widened to two lanes.
All improvements will be completed within the exiting right of way. No additional property will need to be acquired.
This $4,300,000 construction project is expected to begin in late 2021. Questions and/or comments regarding the project may be submitted by Nov. 29, 2020, to Robert P. Kelly, Director of Engineering, City of Westlake, 27700 Hilliard Boulevard, Westlake, Ohio 44145. For further information or to submit formal comments, please contact the Westlake Engineering Department at (440) 617-4145.
