322 shouldn't exist west of us 20

And I-74 shouldn't exist south of I-70.
US 24 shouldn't exist south of US 30.
Find something better to complain about.

the hell are you talking about? 74 should connect Cincinnati and Indianapolis. and US 24 is a very important highway south of US 30.  Find better examples and get back to me.

^ Instead of bantering back and forth, could you please explain why you don't think 322 should go west of 20?

^ So is having U.S. routes closely paralleling Interstate routes, but I don't recall you complaining about that...

 :eyebrow: Going back to the topic:

ODOT will close part of I-490 in Cleveland for 2 years

The easternmost portion of I-490, between I-77 and E. 55th Street, will close May 29 for two years.

While "part of 490 will close" from the headline is technically true, it's more like "the access ramps to/from E. 55th and I-77/I-490" will close.

Oh, and the comment section has been a fun read on that article.

Local traffic doesn't necessarily need a U.S. route (or really ANY route) to follow.

Bingo - in the years I lived in Cleveland and in other cities, you drove on Woodland or Buckeye or Euclid or Chester, not Route 87 or Route 8 or US 20 or US 322. The routes would be infrequently posted anyways, and you'd never use them for directions or for navigation. Heck, most navigation systems just spit out the street names, not route numbers, in the cities.

I think it's funny that while the Interstate ends in an at-grade intersection with East 55th Street, the replacement boulevard will actually go under East 55th, but at least there will be a connector between the two that will facilitate movement between them.

Drove down E. 55th today, which they currently have rerouted in a semicircle pattern going around the east side of the main construction area. If E 55th is going to stay open, I would assume the plan is to dig the trench from where E. 55th used to be towards 490, then build the new E. 55th bridge, then build the trench to the east (destroying the temporary road E. 55th is using now)
