Major Projects on I-71/75 & I-275 Near Completion; Interchange Work on I-275 at Graves Rd. Begins
Brrrrr ... Colder weather means we're cranking through as much project work as we can before the end of construction season. Two big projects that saw major activity this summer are nearing completion:
I-71/75 Merging Lanes & Pavement Rehab Project

One lane in each direction of I-71/75 is being built between Mt. Zion Rd. and US 42. Each lane will extend approximately two miles and will improve traffic flow on I-71/75 by making it easier to safely enter and exit the interstate, giving drivers more time to merge with mainline traffic.

Northbound work will be completed this year. Look for southbound improvements in 2020.
I-275 Pavement Rehab Project

A total pavement replacement is taking place on a three-mile section of I-275 in both directions between Dixie Hwy. (US 25) and Turfway Rd. (KY 717), just east of the Mineola Pk. exit.

Eastbound work will be completed this year. Look for westbound improvements in 2020.
And while work on these two projects winds down for the season, our work to establish a new interchange at I-275 and Graves Rd. is just underway.

This past weekend, crews finished placing barrier wall to allow for some initial project work. Major construction activity and lane impacts will not begin until 2020.
Orange Barrels
Mean Progress

 KYTC is investing more than one-quarter of a billion dollars in infrastructure improvements in our area just this year.

That’s a lot of work.

And it will mean a good number of orange barrels along some major roadways. 

While we understand those orange barrels may slow you down a bit, we hope when you see them, you will think about all of the positive growth and progress that is taking place in Northern Kentucky. 
Mt. Zion Rd. and Richwood Rd. Project Team Selected; work to start soon
We recently selected a joint team of Eaton Asphalt, John R. Jurgensen and Haydon Bridge Co. to complete major interchange improvements at Mt. Zion Rd. (KY 536) and Richwood Rd. (KY 338).

Utility work for both projects is expected to begin this year; major work won't begin until next spring.

Both projects will feature Double Crossover Diamond interchanges. Read why these "DCD" traffic patterns are growing in popularity because of their safety benefits.
