    • Detour is EB Hopple to Connector Road to NB Central Parkway to NB IR75 via ramp by Cincinnati State
  2. Eastbound Hopple to Southbound IR75 Ramp Closure: 
    • Detour is SB on Colerain Avenue to EB on Marshall Avenue to NB on Central Parkway to EB on the Connector Road to WB on Hopple to SB75 via ramp
  3. MLK is permanently closed at the intersection of Central Parkway and Hopple:
    • Detour is the new Connector Road
  4. Bates Avenue ramp to IR74W is permanently closed:
    • This ramp was replaced by the ramp from the Hopple Bridge to IR74W.
  5. IR74E ramp to Central Parkway is permanently closed:
    • Detour is to Hopple Street Exit from SB75
  6. IR74W is reduced to one lane for 120 days at the IR75/IR74 Interchange.

I-75 mainline traffic was switched into Phase 6 in June 2016.  The current traffic pattern for this phase is as follows.  Four lanes of I-75 northbound are being maintained with three lanes on the west side of I-75 in a contra-flow configuration.  Four lanes of I-75 southbound traffic still remain shifted to the west side of I-75. Northbound I-75 will be reconstructed in this phase.  Phase 6 is anticipated to be complete in November 2016.
