CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A public hearing for the proposed reconstruction of Interstate 75 from the Western Hills Viaduct to the Paddock Road interchanges is slated for Tuesday, Feb. 10 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the St. Bernard Municipal Building, 120 Washington Ave. in St. Bernard.
The proposed scope of the project includes adding one additional through lane in each direction on I-75 from the Western Hills Viaduct to north of the Paddock Road interchange. The project length is approximately eight miles. It also includes improvements to the interchanges on I-75 at Hopple Street, I-74, Mitchell Avenue, Norwood Lateral (SR 562), and Paddock Road. The partial interchange at Towne Street is removed by the project. The Colerain/ Beekman interchange on I-74, just west of the I-74/I-75 interchange, is improved as a part of this action.
The hearing will be conducted in an "open house" style and no formal presentations will be made. The public may visit at any time to view the project materials and ask questions.
The purpose of the hearing is to inform the public about the project, and encourage the public to comment and ask questions. Maps, drawings, and other pertinent information, including the Environmental Assessment and previous project documents, will be available for public inspection.
