Fort Thomas and Campbell County emergency responders are on scene now. Multiple vehicles are disabled and injuries are not yet known.
Accidents on this stretch of road have increased. In December, published data for 2018 was only available through August, but compared with data on averages over the previous three years, the number of accidents near the bridge increased in five out of eight months and exceeded the highest number of accidents recorded in all years in half of those months.

Engineers created contraflow lanes in which lanes that normally flow one way are changed or switched to open up room for repairs. Traffic travels on temporary pavement or the shoulder of the road against the flow of the surrounding lanes, usually marked by temporary concrete barriers.
The Combs-Hehl project is an active construction zone with different things happening every day. In November they shifted eastbound lanes, and in the spring they will flip the entire flow for westbound lanes.
The $31 million construction project includes resurfacing on I-275 from Four-Mile Road in Ohio to the Kentucky side of the Ohio River and rehabilitation of four twin bridges including Four-Mile Road., Sutton Road, Kellogg Avenue and Combs-Hehl.
