I-275 Resurfacing to Impact Traffic in Campbell County
Traffic restrictions are on the way as part of the $31 million resurfacing project of Interstate 275 from Four Mile Road in Kentucky to the Ohio side of the Ohio River along the Combs Hehl Bridge.
Expect lane closures beginning this week.
Monday through Friday, there will be daily lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. along Mary Ingles Highway (KY 8) between River Road and Blangey Road, and on Kellogg Avenue in Cincinnati at the I-27 overpass, as well as at exits 71 and 72 to east and west Kellogg Avenue (U.S. 52).
The detour at Kellogg Avenue involves Five Mile Road to west I-275. The on-ramp to east/north 275 will be open.
There are also truck restrictions for vehicles entering Ohio from Kentucky: 10-ft. wide, 75-ft. long, and 120,000 pounds.
The project involves 1.6 miles of resurfacing on I-275.
The full project will be completed by August 2020.
The project will also utilize a contraflow configuration that begins on the Kentucky side of the Combs-Hehl Bridge and ends near Sutton Rd. in Ohio.
The initial contraflow alignment will begin in mid-June through mid- to late November 2018. Then in November 2018 the next phase of the contraflow configuration will be implemented until late spring/early summer 2019.
What's a Contraflow:
A contraflow lane is a lane in which traffic travels on temporary pavement or existing shoulder in the opposite direction (against the flow) of the surrounding lanes. This single lane is separated from the opposite flowing traffic by temporary concrete barriers.
