Long delays likely along I-471 section

        Construction on Interstate 471 between the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge and Interstate 71 in downtown Cincinnati will begin at 5 a.m. Tuesday and close one southbound lane.

        ARTIMIS traffic signs Sunday already were warning motorists to expect serious delays in the weeks ahead.

        The construction is one of the first stages of a $15.4 million project to improve ramps, the bridge, and the one-mile stretch of I-471 along the east edge of downtown.

        The project is expected to be completed in the fall, said spokeswoman Kim Patton of the Ohio Department of Transportation.
