Interstate 75/Hopple construction update for
Hamilton County (Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016) – Work on the Interstate75/Hopple Street project requires a traffic switch, reducing westbound I-74 to one lane from the split of northbound I-75 to the overpass of I-75. In order to accomplish this switch, the following restrictions will be in place:
Beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, close the right lane of northbound I-75 from south of the Western Hills Viaduct to the I-75/I-74 interchange until 5 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24.
Close the following ramps from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Saturday:
o Bank Street/Harrison Avenue to northbound I-75
o Northbound I-75 to Hopple Street
o Hopple Street to westbound I-74
In addition, the ramp from northbound I-75 to westbound I-74 will be closed from 12:01 a.m. until 4 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24. Traffic will be detoured using northbound I-75 to Mitchell Avenue (Exit 6) to southbound I-75 to westbound I-74.
Once in place, the westbound I-74 lane reduction will remain for 120 days.
Arrow boards and/or signs are in place to alert motorists of the work zone, lane and ramp closures. All work is weather dependent.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
