I-75/Hopple traffic shift slated this weekend

Hamilton County (Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015) – Construction on Interstate 75 at Hopple will implement a traffic switch on southbound Interstate 75 this weekend.

The shift will consist of placing three lanes of southbound I-75 traffic on the west side of I-75 between the I-74 and Harrison Avenue interchanges. One lane of southbound I-75 traffic will remain in a contraflow position on northbound I-75 between I-74 and Harrison. Northbound I-75 traffic will not be affected and will remain unchanged. 

As part of the traffic switch: 

Traffic in the left lane of southbound I-75, north of I-74, will be required to enter the contraflow lane. This traffic will not have access to the Hopple or Harrison Avenue exits from southbound I-75.  In addition, the single lane closure on eastbound I-74 will be removed.

 To implement the traffic switch, the following traffic restrictions will be in place Friday, Nov. 20:

The ramp from southbound I-75 to Hopple Street will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20 until 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 21;

The ramps from Hopple Street to southbound I-75 and from southbound I-75 to Harrison Avenue will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20 until 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 21; 

A single lane closure on southbound I-75 will be in place beginning at 8 p.m., followed by a double lane closure at 10 p.m. with all lanes reopened to traffic by 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21; 

A rolling closure on southbound I-75, beginning at approximately 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 21      

Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming road and lane closures.

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.​
