Cleveland is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and is the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state. The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location on the lake shore, as well as being connected to numerous canals and railroad lines. Cleveland's economy has diversified sectors that include manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedical. Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Transportation is key to getting around the City of Cleveland. Three two-digit Interstate highways serve Cleveland directly. Interstate 71 begins just southwest of downtown and is the major route from downtown Cleveland to the airport. I-71 runs through the southwestern suburbs and eventually connects Cleveland with Columbus and Cincinnati. Interstate 77 begins in downtown Cleveland and runs almost due south through the southern suburbs. I-77 sees the least traffic of the three interstates, although it does connect Cleveland to Akron. Interstate 90 connects the two sides of Cleveland, and is the northern terminus for both I-71 and I-77. Running due east–west through the west side suburbs, I-90 turns northeast at the junction with and I-490, and is known as the Innerbelt through downtown. At the junction with the Shoreway, I-90 makes a 90-degree turn known in the area as Dead Man's Curve, then continues northeast, entering Lake County near the eastern split with Ohio State Route 2. Cleveland is also served by two three-digit interstates, Interstate 480, which enters Cleveland briefly at a few points and Interstate 490, which connects I-77 with the junction of I-90 and I-71 just south of downtown.
Two other limited-access highways serve Cleveland. The Cleveland Memorial Shoreway carries State Route 2 along its length, and at varying points also carries US 6, US 20 and I-90. The Jennings Freeway (State Route 176) connects I-71 just south of I-90 to I-480 near the suburbs of Parma and Brooklyn Heights. A third highway, the Berea Freeway (State Route 237 in part), connects I-71 to the airport, and forms part of the boundary between Cleveland and Brook Park.
"With the limited amount of freeways in Cleveland, its very hard not to get into a fender bender or even a major accident. Last November my wife was rear ended by a drunk driver. She was ok but her vehicle was destroyed. The insurance company ended up deaming the vehicle a total loss. After we found out the news, the insurance company offered us an amount that was way lower than what I've seen the vehicle sell for.
My wife and I decided to search around for a certified auto appraiser with total loss experience. After speaking with a number of companies we hired Pinnacle Auto Appraisers to perform our appraisal. What was also appealing is Pinnacle Auto Appraisers handle the negotiation as well. Some auto appraising companies wanted the same fee plus an hourly fee for negotiation. After recieving the report from Pinnacle, I was very impressed on how professional the appraisal was. Its all typed and very detailed. After a week of negotiations, Pinnacle Auto Appraisers settled my claim for $3,000 more than what the insurance company offered me. Not only was the process smooth but these guys made us feel better knowing a professional auto appraiser would take care of the claim for us. Now that we trust these guys, I recently had them inspect a classic car I was looking to purchase in Cincinnati. With time and travel expense, I need someone to put eyes on the vehicle. What a great job they did. For anyone in the Cleveland area looking for a certified auto appraiser, Pinnacle Auto Appraisers can take care of you. Not only do they perform total loss appraisals, they even do pre-purchase inspections for anyone looking to purchase a car. Great job guys!" ~MIke & Irene Cleveland, Oh
