UC opening snarls traffic

By Enquirer Staff

        Morning commuters experienced a 10-20 minute delay Wednesday because of the start of classes at the University of Cincinnati. The only way to avoid it is to leave earlier according to Eryk Rotondo, operations supervisor at ARTIMIS.

        The trouble spots were on the interstates. Interstate 74 was slow from North Bend Road to Interstate-75, which was backed up from Paddock Road to Hopple Street. The right lane of Interstate-71 was slow from Victory Parkway to Taft Road and was heavy from the Kenwood cut to Red Bank Road.

        It eased about 10 a.m.

        The delays were attributed to traffic exiting at Taft Road on I-71 and Hopple Street at I-75, said Mr. Rotondo.

        "There aren't a lot of alternates to get to UC. Leaving early, that's pretty much all you can do,'' he said.
