Project: CUY IR 71 18.29 CCG7A PID No. 98063 - This project involves the construction of a deceleration lane on IR-71 southbound to the SR-176 exit ramp (location map). This project was split off from PID No. 82378, CUY Innerbelt CCG7 Jennings.
Sponsor: Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 12
Estimated Total Cost: $4,492,064 
Proposed Source of Federal Funds: Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) Major/New Construction
History/Background: This project was split off from PID No. 82378, CUY Innerbelt CCG7 Jennings, involving replacing the IR-71 pavement, from approximately West 25th Street (US-42) to IR-90, in Cleveland.
Funding: The project’s estimated total cost, provided by the sponsor, is $4,492,064. The estimated cost of preliminary engineering preliminary development (PEPD) is $160,534. The estimated cost of preliminary engineering detailed design (PEDD) is $24,960. The estimated cost of construction (C) is $4,086,570. The estimated cost of construction engineering (CE) is $220,000. The project will be fully funded with Major/New Construction funds for award in October 2019.

Project: CUY IR 077 13.80 Noise Barrier PID No. 108455 - The proposed project involves constructing approximately 700 feet of noise barrier along the west side of IR-77, between Pershing Avenue and Czar Avenue, in Cleveland (location map).
Sponsor: Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 12
Estimated Total Cost: $300,000  
Proposed Source of Federal Funds: Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) Major/New Construction

History/Background: This project is the result of analysis performed in 2014, of noise impacts of a project, currently under construction (CUY IR 077 13.80 CCG6B), which involves building a new longer bridge for Broadway (SR-14), over IR-77 and the reconstruction and modification of related interchange ramps. The analysis resulted in a recommendation for the installation of a noise wall along the west side of IR-77.
Funding: The project’s estimated total cost, provided by the sponsor, is $300,000. The estimated cost of preliminary engineering detailed design (PEDD) is $50,000. The estimated cost of construction (C) is $250,000. The project will be fully funded with ODOT District Preservation funds for award in April 2019.

Staff Comment (Summary):
 
CUY IR 71 18.29 CCG7A PID No. 98063:
  • RECOMMENDATION - An operational problem exists on I-71 southbound at the exit to SR 176.  Traffic entering I-71 southbound from I-90 and I-490 is able to exit to SR 176 southbound by crossing three lanes of I-71 in an extremely short distance.  This is not the intended traffic pattern; ramps at the interchange were constructed to allow traffic from I-90 and I-490 to “fly over” I-71 travel lanes before continuing south on SR 176.  Staff recommends that ODOT mitigate this problem with the proposed project by installing a barrier to prevent the movement of traffic from I-90 and I-490 across the travel lanes of I-71 southbound to reach SR 176 southbound.
