Hamilton County (Monday, June 13, 2016) – Bridge work requires lane closures on Interstate 75 this weekend.

One lane of traffic will be maintained and it is recommended to use I-75 to SR 562 to I-71 to avoid delays.
As a reminder, pavement work on I-71 just north of the Lytle Tunnel requires various northbound lane closures beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, June 17 until 6 a.m. on Monday, June 20.
During this time the northbound I-71 entrance ramps from 2nd and 5th streets will be closed. Traffic will be detoured to 7th Street to Gilbert Avenue to northbound I-71.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work zones. All work is weather dependent.
