If you plan on using I-71 this weekend you might want to change your plans because it will be shut down in both directors.
Duke Energy needs to pull aerial cables across the highway.
As part of the project by Duke Energy, the following closures and detours also will be in place:
- Northbound I-71/75 to I-71 at the north end of Brent Spence Bridge, with traffic detoured via I-75 North and S.R. 562 East.
- The Fourth Street ramp to I-71/I-75 North in Covington, KY, with traffic detoured by way of the Twelfth Street on-ramp.
- I-71 North at Smith Edwards Road; traffic will be detoured using S.R. 561, U.S. 22, Norwood Avenue and Wesley Avenue.
- The Smith Edwards ramp to I-71 North; traffic will be detoured via the I-71 North detour.
- I-71 South at S.R. 562; traffic will be detoured to S.R. 562 West to I-75 South.
