I-71 ramp down to one lane

Saturday, August 8, 1998

BY The Cincinnati Enquirer

The I-71 southbound ramp to I-471 will be reduced to one lane until about 5 p.m. todayso crews can install additional highway signs for Fort Washington Way.

The work also will involve a "rolling roadblock" this morning to set an overhead sign support.

Cincinnati is rebuilding Fort Washington Way to make the city's east-west connector safer and to narrow the highway, leaving more room for riverfront development.

The $146.9 million Fort Washington Way 2000 project is scheduled to be finished in August 2000.
