I-75/Hopple traffic shift scheduled this weekend

Hamilton County (Thursday, May 28, 2015) – Construction work on Interstate 75 at Hopple will implement a traffic switch on southbound Interstate 75 this weekend.

Two lanes of southbound I-75, from just south of the I-74/I-75 interchange to just north of the Western Hills Viaduct, will be shifted approximately 50 feet east toward the median. With this traffic shift, the location of the exit from southbound I-75 to Hopple Street will be shifted slightly south.

In addition, the new ramp from eastbound Hopple Street to southbound I-75 will open with traffic shifted from the existing ramp to the new ramp near the top of the existing ramp.

The right lane of southbound I-75, south of the bridge of Marshall Avenue, will be an exit only lane to the Harrison Avenue exit.

This traffic shift will not impact the two lanes of southbound I-75 located in the contraflow lanes on the northbound side of I-75. These two contraflow lanes will continue to not have access to the Hopple Street exit or the Harrison Avenue exit.

To implement this traffic switch, the following traffic restrictions will be in place Sunday, May 31:

·         A right lane closure will be in place on southbound I-75 between the I-74 off-ramp and the Western Hills Viaduct from 7 p.m. Sunday, May 31 to 6 a.m. June 1.

·         A rolling closure will be in place on southbound I-75 from midnight Sunday, May 31 to 5 a.m. Monday, June 1.

·         Closure of the right lane of the contraflow portion of southbound I-75 between the Marshall Avenue Bridge and the Western Hills Viaduct will be in place from 10 p.m. Sunday, May 31 to 4 a.m. Monday, June 1.

·         The ramps from southbound I-75 to Hopple, from Hopple to southbound I-75 and from southbound 75 to Harrison Avenue will be closed from 10 p.m. Sunday, May 31 to 5 a.m. Monday, June 1.

 

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.​
