Traffic to switch to new Hopple structure this weekend

HAMILTON COUNTY (Friday, Oct. 10, 2014)The I-75 at Hopple interchange construction achieves a significant milestone this weekend with the switch of traffic to the new Hopple Bridge over I-75.

To accommodate work to implement the traffic switch, the following traffic restrictions will be place:

1.      The ramps from northbound and southbound I-75 to Hopple Street will be closed from 3 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11.

2.      MLK/Hopple from the Connector Road to Dixmyth Drive will be closed from 3 a.m. until 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained.

3.      The Connector Road will be closed from 3 a.m. until 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained.

4.      Hopple Street between Central Parkway and Colerain Avenue will be closed from 3 a.m. until 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Traffic should use   Marshall and Monmouth as detour routes to access Central Parkway and Colerain, in lieu of crossing the existing or new Hopple bridges.

5.      The ramp from eastbound Hopple Street to southbound I-75 will remain in service throughout the traffic switch.  However, short-term closures may be necessary throughout the switch.

Once the traffic switch to the new Hopple structure is complete, traffic to and from Central Parkway will access Hopple Street by way of the new Connector Road, located behind White Castle. Pedestrian access across the new Hopple structure will be maintained on the north side of the bridge.

In addition:

1.      Access to westbound I-74 will remain the same as it currently exists – via the temporary ramp on Central Parkway, just south of Clifton Hills Avenue.

2.      Access to northbound I-75 will remain the same as it currently exists – via the existing ramp near Cincinnati State.

3.      Access to southbound I-75 will remain the same as it currently exists – via the ramp on the west side of the Hopple structure near Henshaw Avenue.

4.      The east end of MLK/Hopple (near the Forum Apartments coming down the hill from Clifton) for westbound traffic will have one lane for through traffic to cross the new Hopple structure.  The left through lane will turn into a left turn lane near the Forum Apartments to provide access to travel south on the Connector Road to access Central Parkway and the ramps to westbound I-74 and northbound I-75.

5.      A new signal will be in service at the intersection of the Connector Road and MLK/Hopple on the east side of the bridge.
