Interstate 75/I-74 Major Reconstruction Project
Update Traffic Shift Scheduled
Hamilton County (Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018) - The first stage of
construction on the I-75/I-74 Major Reconstruction Project includes pavement resurfacing, bridge deck
patching, and drainage improvements on west I-74 from I-75 to Beekman Street.
Two lanes of I-74 traffic and all ramps will be maintained
throughout. Lanes will be narrowed and shifted through the work zone. Overnight single lane closures
should also be expected.
In order to prepare for the first traffic shift on west I-74, the
following restrictions will be in place:
Oct. 5 and Monday, Oct. 8 through Thursday, Oct. 11 - Close the left lanes of east and west I-74 between Spring Grove
Avenue and just north of southbound Beekman Street nightly from 9 p.m. until 6
a.m. Due to weather no work will occur on Wednesday, Oct 10.
POSTPONED UNTIL NEXT WEEK
Oct. 12 - Close the left lane of
west I-74 from Spring Grove Avenue to just north of southbound Beekman Street
from 9 p.m. until approximately midnight. Close the right lane in this area
from 12:01 a.m. until 6 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.
In addition, close the
left lane of east I-74 in this area from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. Saturday.
Once complete, two
lanes of west I-74 traffic will be shifted to the inside (median) lanes with
work taking place in the outside lane. Traffic will remain in this pattern for
approximately three weeks.
Arrow boards and/or
signs will alert motorists of the work zone and restrictions. All work is
contingent upon the 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. Remember, move over or slow down.
