CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland has landed $29 million from the state to plan a long-delayed highway project linking Interstate 490 and the University Circle arts and museum district.
The $324 million project would run 3 ½ miles through Cleveland's East side neighborhoods and connect with the big Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals employment centers.
According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/18NsPGc), the Ohio Department of Transportation earmarked the money a while ago and the state Controlling Board voted Monday to approve the funding.
Needed federal approval and funding are still pending.
