FWW, I-75 closing on weekend

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Fort Washington Way will be entirely closed Saturday night and Sunday morning.

        On the heels of Friday's closing of the highway's westbound lanes for four months, eastbound lanes are to be closed from 10 p.m. Saturday until 9 a.m. Sunday so construction crews can knock down parts of the former Fort Washington Way over Interstate 75's northbound lanes.

        That means I-75 northbound just south of the Brent Spence Bridge and the exit ramps to Fifth Street in Cincinnati and westbound U.S. 50 will be closed, too.

        Detour signs will be up to direct northbound I-75 traffic to take the Fifth Street exit in Covington. Drivers then take Main Street and go across the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge into Ohio. From there:

        • To get to I-75 northbound: Go west on Third Street, north on Gest Street and then connect with I-75 northbound again at Freeman Avenue.

        • To get to I-71 northbound: Go east on Third Street in Ohio to Broadway. Take Broadway north to Fifth Street. Once on Fifth Street, drivers can connect with I-71 northbound.

        Detour signs will direct drivers southbound on I-75 to take the Seventh Street exit in Cincinnati. Drivers can then turn south on a one-way street to get to Fifth Street. Once on Fifth Street, they can connect with southbound I-471, eastbound U.S. 50 and northbound I-71.
