CLEVELAND– Construction to Quicken Loans Arena along Huron Road is set to begin.

That means barriers around the construction zones will go up Monday at 5 a.m. The barricades will restrict traffic in downtown Cleveland’s Gateway District, a news release from the Q said on Friday.

Huron Road from Ontario Street to East 6th Street will be reduced to two lanes when eastbound lanes closest to the Q are closed for the construction zone. Two open lanes will be split into one eastbound and one westbound during non-event times.

The Huron Road lanes closures are expected to last 18 months.

Plans were announced to renovate the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers in December 2016. The Cavs agreed to pay for half of the $140 million project, with the city of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County covering the other portion.

Construction was delayed when community groups pushed for a ballot issue. At one point, the team withdrew its support, saying the referendum attempts made the project unfeasible.
