Ft. Washington Way to close eastbound Saturday

        Work on the Fort Washington Way reconstruction will force the closing of the eastbound stretch of the highway on Saturday.

        The closure is necessary to protect motorists during the demolition of former Fort Washington Way bridges and ramps overhead, construction officials said. Traffic will be diverted onto local streets.

        The closing will begin at 6 a.m. Saturday. Crews plan to reopen the eastbound stretch of highway by 2 p.m.

        Interstate 71 northbound traffic will be directed to take the Fifth Street exit into Cincinnati, cross downtown on Fifth, and return to I-71 on the eastern edge of downtown. Motorists can also take I-75 north to either the Norwood Lateral (Ohio 562), the Ronald Reagan Highway (Ohio 126), or I-275 to connect to I-71 northbound.

        Southbound traffic on I-75 will be directed to exit onto Seventh Street downtown to connect with Interstate 471 southbound and U.S. 50 eastbound; and to I-71 northbound via Fifth Street.

        The exit ramp at Pete Rose Way will remain open.
