Transition northbound from north end of 2001 project to original alignment; new 2003 road unopened past barrier (4/17/03):

Further north (4/17/03):

Approaching I-90, where the old and new almost converge (4/17/03):

Same curve, looking south (4/17/03):

Same curve, farther back. In the foreground is the grading for the I-90 Eastbound ramps (4/17/03):

Same curve, even farther back, from the south end of the I-90 / Center St bridge (4/17/03):

Northbound, approching the I-90 bridge (4/17/03):

Northbound, at the I-90 bridge. A sign like this also existed southbound from Ohio 84 but it was removed about 45 minutes before I started taking pictures. Note the beginning of the foundation for the east side of the widened bridge (the existing supports were incorporated into the new bridge) (4/17/03):

Close-up of the bridge foundation (4/17/03):

Looking the wrong way (east) up the I-90 Westbound offramp (4/17/03):

North of I-90, where the original alignment transitions to the roadway which will be the northbound lanes (4/17/03):

Just further north, where the abandoned original alignment picks up (4/17/03):

Same place looking south (4/17/03):

Two progressive northbound views (Ohio 84 is in the distance) (4/17/03):

Northbound at Ohio 84 (4/17/03):

Northbound from Ohio 84, 12/24/01. In August 2001, widening of Ohio SR 615 began between Ohio 84 and US 20, with Ohio 615 becoming one-way (one lane) southbound only during construction. The completed 4-lane 615 was opened by September 12, 2002. Photo:

Three views looking south from Ohio 84 (4/17/03):

Looking east (3/25/99). Note the red "ONLY". Not pictured was the lane-use overhead sign assembly approaching this intersection. Earlier the right lane was labeled as straight through only, even though right turns were not prohibited here. A small right curved arrow was later appeneded to the straight arrow, though the "ONLY" was not removed. This is long gone now, though other examples of this color scheme exist elsewhere around Mentor. Photo:
