Major Work on I-275 Will Affect Kentucky Motorists Until November


Pavement resurfacing and bridge work on east and west Interstate 275 from approximately Four Mile Road to the Kentucky side of the Ohio River will require various lane closures until a projected completion date in August of 2020.

Preliminary work on the project will began May 14 and includes various shoulder closures on I-275 between Four Mile Road and Kellogg Avenue daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for constructing temporary lighting and pavement.

The $31 million construction project includes 1.6 miles of resurfacing and rehabilitation of four I-275 twin bridges at Four Mile Rd.; Sutton Rd.; Kellogg Ave.; and Combs-Hehl.

The Combs Hehl Bridge from River Road in Fort Thomas. 

ODOT has communicated with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to let them know that Kentucky motorist will be affected by various nightly lane closures on the west of I-275 from US 52 to just past the Combs-Hehl Bridge in Kentucky from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, May 21 through Thursday, May 24.  Lane closures are to shift traffic to the outside shoulder of west I-275 in preparation of a contraflow configuration that will begin near Sutton Road and end on the Kentucky side of the Combs-Hehl Bridge. The contraflow lane will remain in place until approximately late November.

Then in November 2018 the next phase of the contraflow configuration will be implemented until late spring/early summer 2019. The contraflow directional phasing is still being determined and will be identified within the next two weeks.

Roofing, painting, gutters, roofing. 
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming work zone and restrictions. All work is contingent upon the weather.


To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
