The project requires the following restrictions:
Monday through Saturday, June 7-13 - Various lane closures on Kellogg Avenue at the I-275 overpasses daily from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The following restrictions will be in place for trucks entering Ohio from Kentucky:

Motorists should be alert when entering the work zone. 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.
