Ohio 176 - Jennings Freeway

Ohio 176 south
Two ramps carry drivers onto the southbound beginning of Ohio 176 (Jennings Freeway): Exit 246 from the Interstate 71 southbound mainline and a second ramp emanating from Interstate 90 east, Interstate 490 west, and West 14th Street. Pictured here is the ramp from Interstates 90 and 490 as it passes under Interstate 71 north. The first exit of the southbound Jennings Freeway joins parallel Jennings Road and claims the right-hand lane. Photo taken 08/12/06.
Motorists from both ramps converge to form Ohio 176 south ahead of the wye interchange to Jennings Road. Ohio 176 hugs Riverside Cemetery on the southward curve away from Interstate 71. Jennings Road, the namesake of Jennings Freeway, travels southward from the Steelyard Drive to Spring Road in south Cleveland. Photo taken 08/12/06.
Immediately south of the Jennings Road off-ramp is a diamond interchange joining Ohio 176 (Jennings Freeway) with Denison Avenue west and the Denison-Harvard Bridge east to Harvard Avenue. Harvard Avenue leads east to Newburgh Heights and junction Interstate 77. Denison Avenue continues west to U.S. 42 (Pearl Road). Photo taken 08/12/06.

Ohio 176 (Jennings Freeway) travels a viaduct over the CSX Railroad and Valley Road on the 0.75-mile approach to Hinckley Parkway and Spring Road. Interstate 480 lies two miles south of Denison Avenue. Photo taken 08/12/06.
Continuing south of the viaduct, Jennings Road passes over Ohio 176 near the Spring Road diamond interchange. Spring Road becomes Hinckley Parkway, a parallel roadway leading south to Schaff Road. Photo taken 08/12/06.
Southbound Ohio 176 at the Spring Road off-ramp. Spring Road stems west from the Jennings Freeway to Broadview Road (former Ohio 176) in south Cleveland. Photo taken 08/12/06.

The Jennings Freeway prepares to partition into three single lane ramps to Interstate 480 west to Interstate 90 and Toledo, Interstate 480 east to Interstate 80 (Ohio Turnpike) and Youngstown, and the continuation of Ohio 176 south to Ohio 17 (Brookpark Road) and Parma. Photo taken 08/12/06.
Entering the final half mile of the Jennings Freeway, drivers bound for Interstate 480 west depart first. Interstate 480 straddles the Cleveland and Parma city line westward to Brooklyn and Parma Heights. Interstate 480 reaches Interstate 71 near Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport in seven miles. Photo taken 08/12/06.
The left-hand lane carries Ohio 176 south to Ohio 17 (Brookpark Road), an east-west route lining the Cleveland / Parma city line. Ohio 176 kisses Ohio 17 between the freeway and its continuation on Broadview Road south through east Parma. Photo taken 08/12/06.
Meanwhile on the ramps to Interstate 480, a two-lane connection facilitates the movements onto the eastbound freeway to Interstate 77 at Independence, Garfield Heights, and Maple Heights among other southeast suburbs. Photo taken 08/12/06.
