I-275 Texas Turnaround to be deployed Sept. 5

Hamilton County (Friday, Sept. 5, 2014)  – The I-275 resurfacing project in Hamilton County will require the closure of two ramps to perform work operations, and the first closure – from southbound I-275 to eastbound I-74 will be implemented Friday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. for 30 days.

Traffic wishing to access these ramps will be rerouted by way of a maintenance of traffic operation known as the Texas Turnaround, which essentially is an extended U-turn for I-74 and I-275.

Southbound I-275 traffic traveling on to eastbound I-74 will continue on west I-74/south I-275 and exit at SR 128 where traffic will enter the far left lane to access a dedicated lane that will carry traffic to eastbound I-74. Traffic accessing the turnaround will not wait on a traffic signal.

Upon completion of this work, the ramp from westbound I-74 to northbound I-275 will be closed for 30 days with traffic diverted to westbound I-74 to SR 128 to access the turnaround to eastbound I-74 for eventual access to northbound I-275.

During these ramp closures, the ramp from SR 128 to westbound I-74 and the park and ride lot on SR 128 will be closed. The turnaround will add approximately five minutes to a commute under normal traffic conditions. Diagrams below depict how the turnaround operates.​
