CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Southbound Interstate 71 at Dana Ave reopened early Sunday afternoon. A portion had been closed since Friday for the demolition of the Conrail bridge.

Construction was supposed to last through 5 a.m. Monday morning.

Crews are working on $80.8 million project to build a new Uptown interchange at I-71 and Martin Luther King Drive.

ODOT said the northbound lanes will also need to be closed at some point for this project, but they have not yet set a date for that work.
