Hamilton County (Thursday, April 9, 2015) – In order to erect box trusses across all lanes of the West Sixth Street Expressway, nightly closures of eastbound Sixth Street will be in place next week.

Beginning at 10 p.m. each night Monday, April 13 through Thursday, April 16, eastbound Sixth Street will be closed from Freeman Avenue to downtown, with the ramps from I-71/I-75/Fort Washington Way also closed. The road and ramps will be open by 5 a.m. the following day.

Eastbound Sixth Street traffic will be detoured to Mehring Way to Second/Third Streets to U.S. 42 to access Fort Washington Way and northbound I-71.

North and southbound I-75 traffic will be detoured across the West Eighth Street Viaduct to U.S. 127 to Ezzard Charles Drive to access south or northbound I-75.

Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming road and ramp closures and all work is dependent on 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.​
