The new travel pattern at Fourth St. and I-71/75 in Covington is OPEN.
For more information on how to navigate a Texas Turnaround, please visit our Street Talk page.
In a Texas Turnaround, drivers bypass the two traffic signals and travel in a continuous movement from the left lane of a highway off ramp through the intersection and back the opposite direction on the frontage road or highway ramp. The turnaround movement is free-flowing and does not enter the signalized intersection, so traffic accessing the highway can move efficiently.
The on-ramp to I-71/75 northbound from Fourth St. is CLOSED. This closure is permanent.
