Interstate 71/MLK Project Update
 
Hamilton County (Tuesday, June 28, 2016) – The following Lincoln Avenue traffic shift is part of the work to create a new, full movement interchange at Interstate 71 and Martin Luther King Drive.
 
Traffic on Lincoln Avenue over I-71 is maintained by a temporary signal allowing work on the north side of the bridge. Beginning at 9 p.m. Thursday, June 29, traffic on Lincoln Avenue will be shifted to the north side of the bridge to accommodate work on the southern half of the bridge. All work will be complete by 6 a.m. Friday, June 30, leaving two through lanes on Lincoln Avenue. May Street will remain closed between Lincoln Avenue and Tuxedo Place.
 
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work zone. All work is dependent upon weather.
 
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.
