COVINGTON, KY (WXIX) - The Fourth Street on-ramp to I-75/71 north in Covington will permanently close on Thursday at 5 a.m. as the Texas Turnaround Project nears completion.

Traffic will be directed from Fourth Street to I-75/I-71 north using I-75/I-71 southbound lanes to Kyles Lane.

On Thursday, the Pike Street ramp will reopen at 5 a.m. after a 7-month closure. Four lanes will be open on I-75/I-71 north, where the Pike Street on-ramp connects to I-75/I-71 north and extends north across the Brent Spence Bridge.

The Texas Turnaround is aimed to divert traffic from 4th Street southbound and then off the Pike Street exit. From there, cars and trucks will use the Pike Street entrance ramp to northbound I-75.
