Third Street ramp closes off SB I-71

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Third Street exit ramp from southbound Interstate 71 Downtown is closed until April 29.

The ramp shut down Saturday night so crews can spend the next few weeks working lighting in the Lytle Tunnel.

State transportation officials suggest motorist detour onto the Reading Road exit. From there, they can turn left onto Elsinore Avenue and head south to Gilbert Avenue, which continues to Eighth Street, and then go left on Sycamore Street to Third Street.

Or, take the Reading Road exit south to Central Parkway, turn left on Sycamore Street  and then veer south to Third Street.
