Additional funding announced for Mill Creek Expressway project

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

State Rep. Dale Mallory has announced the the approval of new state funding to complete phase four of the Mill Creek Expressway project. 

The project is an investment by the State of Ohio that is focused on improving safety, reducing congestion and traffic delays, and modernizing interstate travel along I-75 in Cincinnati.

The plan consists of total reconstruction of existing portions of I-75 with a lane addition northbound and southbound from Western Hills Viaduct to the Monmouth Overpass.

"I am very pleased that the state of Ohio is making progress toward upgrading and modernizing our infrastructure.  The parts of I-75 which run through the city of Cincinnati are extremely congested and it's time we invested in making travel safer and more efficient," said Rep. Mallory.  "Once all phases of this project are complete, I believe the citizens of Cincinnati and the visitors who travel our roadways will greatly appreciate the improvements put in place as a result of this vital investment. 

The funding will help secure a valuable parcel of landed needed for successfully completion of phase four of the project.  

This phase of the project also includes complete reconstruction of the I-75/Hopple interchange with a total length of approximately 1.6 miles. The ramps to and from Central Parkway near Cincinnati State Technical & Community College will be removed as part of this project once the new Hopple interchange is constructed.

Funding for the project was granted by the Ohio Controlling Board, which provides oversight and final approval for state expenditures.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
