Downtown commuters brace for travel troubles amid Innerbelt work

A busy Wednesday morning rush hour as commuters get used to the new lane closures on the Innerbelt Bridge.

Starting today, I-71N will only allow one lane to continue north to I-90E, and I-76 (Jennings Freeway) will have no access to 71N or 90E. Those who travel on the Jennings Freeway will have to take 490E to get into downtown.

By Thursday, I-90E will be down to two lanes between Ontario and East 14th Street. By Sunday, I-90W will be down to two lanes between East 14th and Ontario.

These changes will be in effect until the end of 2011 or longer.
