Interstate 90 (I-90) runs east–west across the northern tier of the U.S. state of Ohio. Much of it is along the Ohio Turnpike, but sections outside the turnpike pass through Cleveland and northeast into Pennsylvania.

Route description[edit]

In the western half of Ohio, I-90 is jointly signed with the Ohio Turnpike/I-80. The Ohio Turnpike–I-90 connector (designated exit 8A, now exit 142) was built in Lorain County in Amherst Township and Elyria Township in 1975.[2]

From the exit east, I-90/State Route 2 (SR 2) travels east along the south shore of Lake Erie through Cuyahoga County to downtown Cleveland. SR 2 separates from I-90 at Detroit Road in Rocky River. I-90 crosses the Cuyahoga River via the George V. Voinovich Bridges, which replaced the Innerbelt Bridge in 2013 (westbound)[3] through 2016 (eastbound), into downtown Cleveland and, after passing Dead Man's Curve, follows the East Shoreway northeastward along the lakeshore toward Euclid, again co-signed with SR 2. I-90 separates from SR 2 in Euclid and passes through Lake County and Ashtabula County as it continues to travel northeast towards the Pennsylvania state line in Conneaut.

U.S. Route 20 (US 20) parallels I-90 throughout Ohio, as it does in all locations from Illinois eastward; US 6 also parallels I-90 to a lesser extent throughout the state. East of I-271, SR 84 and SR 307 also closely parallel I-90. These routes are usually easily accessible from I-90's interchanges.

Naming[edit]

The entire free section of I-90 in Ohio is called the "AMVETS Highway".[4] Selected stretches are named for various individuals.[5]

In Greater Cleveland, portions of I-90 carry various names, such as the Innerbelt Freeway, the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway, the Lakeland Freeway, and the Euclid Spur.
