Hopple Street ramp to reopen

Hopple Street ramp to reopen

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Drivers who travel around the Hopple Street area will find a new way to enter the highway starting on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for ODOT says the southbound ramp to I-75 from westbound Hopple Street is expected to reopen.

It has been closed for years, making it impossible for drivers to go westbound on Hopple to get to I-75.

"The roads are terrible they got too many zig-zag lines and I just don't like it," said Darnell Pankey. "I usually avoid it and take the streets downtown or to Kentucky."

Construction in that area isn't done just yet.

Also on Wednesday, the ramp from eastbound Hopple Street to southbound I-75 will close until late fall 2016.
