I-71/75 Cut in the Hill Safety Project



I-71/75 northbound:

Monday, Aug. 3 - Saturday, Aug. 15, weather permitting:


The right lane of I-71/75 northbound between Buttermilk Pk. and the Brent Spence Bridge is closed. 


At 10 p.m., each night, the middle lane within the project area also will be closed, and traffic will be reduced to a single lane. 


By 6 a.m., the following morning, the middle lane will reopen and two lanes of travel will be in place throughout the project area. 


This traffic pattern is expected to remain in place until Sat. Aug. 15, at 6 a.m., so that crews can continue pavement treatment and other safety improvements within the project area. It is likely that crews will not work continuously in the same area during this time frame, but will move throughout the project area to complete work. 


Please be aware of crews and equipment moving in and out of the construction zone, reduce your speed, eliminate distractions, and when possible, seek an alternate route to avoid delays. 




I-71/75 southbound:


The right two lanes of I-71/75 southbound are closed from the Brent Spence Bridge to Buttermilk Pk. The left two lanes of travel remain open.


Trucks are encouraged to use the right lane; local traffic is encouraged to use the left lane.


Traffic moving southbound from OH to KY is encouraged to consider alternate routes, including I-275 and I-471.
