  1. Ok, I’m confused! The Shoreway is how I usually get from the near west side to my job on Superior. Since the closure I have taken the Lorain to Carnegie and down to 22nd to get to my parking lot. Now on Friday, Carnegie is also closed?? I come in an hour and a half early because of the traffic, how do I get from the west side to downtown without going on 90 or 71??

    • Kathy – Thanks for your question. Carnegie will only be closed intermittently between E. 93rd and E. 105 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you’re traveling to E. 22nd from the west side, this shouldn’t impact you, particularly if you’re in work before 9 a.m. Hope this answers your question. Have a great day!
