Altered traffic patterns on Huron Rd.:
Huron Rd. in front of The Q, from Ontario St. to E. 6th St., is reduced to two lanes because the eastbound lanes adjacent to the arena are closed as part of the construction zone. Both lanes have been converted to one-way directional traffic.
- Prior to every event at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse and Progressive Field, beginning at the Ontario St./ Huron Rd. intersection, the two lanes are ingress only onto Huron Rd. traveling eastbound toward the Gateway East Garage/Prospect and E. 9th St.
- At the conclusion of every event, the two lanes are dedicated to westbound traffic only. Vehicles departing the Gateway East Garage at the Huron Rd. exit will only be permitted to exit left onto Huron Rd. to travel westbound.
The Cleveland Police will work to efficiently manage traffic flow during ingress and egress for events and will exercise judgement to change traffic patterns as necessary to facilitate a continuous flow of vehicles.
