Interstate 71 Bridge Deck Replacement project update

Hamilton County (Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017) - A single lane closure on northbound Interstate 71 just north of the Lytle Tunnel is required tonight (Sept. 12) from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. 
This lane restriction is to accommodate moving the I-71 northbound lanes currently in a temporary configuration on the southbound side back to the northbound side of the interstate.
Also the Fifth St. ramp to I-71 northbound is expected to open Thursday, Sept. 14 - time of the ramp opening is yet to be determined.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work zone and restrictions.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
