Starting tonight, drivers heading toward downtown and Fort Washington Way will need to watch for detours.
Westbound Fort Washington Way is scheduled to close from 10 p.m. today until 9 a.m. Saturday to demolish old parts of the roadway.
Eastbound lanes of the downtown expressway are scheduled to be closed from 10 p.m. Saturday until 9 a.m. Sunday.
Interstate 75 northbound, just south of the Brent Spence Bridge, and exit ramps to Fifth Street in Cincinnati and U.S. 50 westbound will be closed, too.
Here's how to get around overnight tonight:
I-71 southbound: Traffic can take I-275 around the city or take the Norwood Lateral (Ohio 562) to I-75. Drivers also can take I-471 southbound to I-275 in Kentucky.
And overnight Saturday:
I-75 northbound: Traffic can exit at Fifth Street in Covington. Go north on Main Street and cross the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge into Ohio. Go west on Third Street in Cincinnati, then north on Gest Street to connect with I-75 northbound at Freeman Avenue.
I-71 northbound: Traffic can take Third Street east to Broadway, go north to Fifth Street and connect with the I-71 northbound entrance ramp.
I-75 southbound: Traffic can take the Seventh Street exit to connect with I-471 southbound and U.S. 50 eastbound. Traffic can get to I-71 northbound, or I-471, by heading south to Fifth Street and taking the entrance ramps off Fifth Street.
