Icy conditions cause traffic back up on I-71/I-75 South

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - I-71/I-75 Southbound is moving slowly due to icy road conditions.

The problems begin at the I-74 split and continue past the Cut-In-The Hill.

A statement from the Kentucky Transportation Department states that the highways have been difficult to treat due to the salt trucks getting stuck in the same traffic that they are helping to clear. Rush hour traffic also did not help in getting the salt trucks to the untreated roads.

This has led to multiple delays on the highway, especially I-71/75 in Northern Kentucky.

If at all possible, please try and find alternative routes.
