Pedestrian fatality snarls I-75 traffic

        Northbound Interstate 75 was closed for more than 90 minutes Wednesday night after a pedestrian was struck and killed north of the Brent Spence Bridge downtown.

        Cincinnati police said the body of a 71-year-old woman was found in the high-speed lane near the Ninth Street overpass about 9:45 p.m. The driver was not charged.

        Northbound traffic was blocked at the north end of the bridge while police investigated.

        Northbound truck traffic was diverted onto I-275 in Northern Kentucky.

        Other traffic was diverted at Covington's Fifth Street and 12th Street exits.

        At 11:20 p.m., I-75 traffic was backed up about halfway up Covington's cut-in-the-hill, an ARTIMIS spokeswoman said.

        A number of tractor-trailer rigs were stuck on the south end of the bridge, she said.

        By 11:30 p.m., lanes were reopened.
