Traffic pattern changes with opening of new Hopple Bridge

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Ohio Department of Transportation officials are calling this weekend's opening of the new Hopple Bridge over I-75 a major milestone, but there are going to be some big changes to the traffic pattern as a result.

Officials have announced road and ramp closures beginning Friday night and lasting into Saturday. Affected areas include:

  • The ramps from northbound and southbound I-75 to Hopple Street will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 until noon Saturday, Oct. 11
  • MLK/Hopple from the Connector Road to Dixmyth Drive will be closed from 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 until 5 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained.
  • The Connector Road will be closed from 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 until 5 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained.
  • Hopple Street between Central Parkway and Colerain Avenue will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 until 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Traffic should use Marshall and Monmouth as detour routes to access Central Parkway and Colerain, in lieu of crossing the existing or new Hopple bridges.
  • The ramp from eastbound Hopple Street to southbound I-75 will remain in service throughout the traffic switch. However, short-term closures may be necessary throughout the switch.

The Hopple Bridge is part of Phase 4 of the Mill Creek Expressway Improvement Project. Work started in March 2013 and is expected to be completed in July 2017.

ODOT officials said the $90,790,431 project will improve connections to Camp Washington and Cincinnati's Uptown area from Interstate 75, allowing for easier access to local hospitals, colleges and businesses.
