Interstate construction raise concerns leaving Buckle Up Music Festival this weekend


CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Buckle Up Music Festival is expected to draw thousands of country music fans to Cincinnati this weekend.

This is the first year for the music festival which will be held at Sawyer Point, the same location as last weekend's Bunbury Music Festival.

The festival will feature 80 bands on six stages over three days. The first acts will take the stage Friday at 2 p.m. The last act, Alabama, is expected to perform from 10 to 11:30 p.m.

Concerns have been raised about traffic leaving the event, due to construction work on I-75. The northbound lanes of 75 from Mitchell Avenue to the Norwood Lateral will be shutdown from 11p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. on Saturday.

ODOT is instructing festival goers to detour  west on I-74 to east on I-275 to I-75.
