The I-71/75 and I-275 interchange
is critically important
to the flow of traffic throughout
Northern Kentucky and the Tri-State Region.
The 71/75 and 275 interchanges serves thousands of residents, businesses and other commercial enterprises, and connects I-275 (which forms a by-pass around Greater Cincinnati) with two major interstate highways: I-75 and I-71. Currently, the interchange carries more than twice the amount of vehicles per day than it was originally designed to manage, and traffic levels are expected to continue increasing as Northern Kentucky grows. This escalating traffic, coupled with challenging merges and highway entrance and exit patterns, has resulted in growing congestion and delays in the interchange area. Recent studies have confirmed what those who travel through the area already know: additional capacity and roadway improvements are needed.
Addressing the I-75/I-275 interchange
is a high priority for KYTC.
The Kentucky Department of Transportation (KYTC) has seen the problems, heard the concerns of the community and are committed to making improvements. Through the I-75/I-275 Interchange Scoping Study, they will identify and evaluate options to reduce congestion, improve travel safety and promote better connectivity in the interchange area and near vicinity. The goal is to identify improvements by early 2020. It is anticipated that improvements may be phased in, though specific timing will not be known until construction funding has been secured.
Information about progress will be posted on their website as it becomes available. Be sure to visit often to learn what’s new and to participate in the process. They look forward to hearing from you at http://www.75275interchange.org/
