CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Southbound I-75 has reopened at Ezzard Charles Drive following a police pursuit Wednesday. 

Ronald Foster, the man wanted in an Ohio officer-involved shooting Sunday in Hartwell, died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said, following the chase.

There will be no easy way to avoid the delays and major traffic backup getting across the river, but here are some alternatives. 

  • If you can avoid 75, directly use I-71 southbound and go through downtown to get over the Brent Spence Bridge.
  • North of I-275: Take I-275 east or westbound
  • South of I-275: Traffic could be detoured to SR-562, the Norwood Lateral, eastbound to I-71.
  • South of SR-562: Traffic could be diverted to I-74 westbound to get on the Norwood Lateral to travel to I-71 eastbound.
