CINCINNATI – A small stretch of Eggleston Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction overnight tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 23, beginning at 9:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Saturday while crews for the Ohio Department of Transportation work overhead on Interstate 71.
The same lane closure on Eggleston, as well as Culvert and Sentinel streets, will be in place nightly next week from 9:00 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, through 5:00 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1.
Additionally, the closures may be in effect daily from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. based on field conditions as work progresses.
Please see the attached map, which shows the closures.
Crews are preparing for the demolition and reconstruction of the interstate’s southbound bridge deck between the entrance to Lytle Tunnel and the pedestrian bridge to Mount Adams. Work on the northbound lanes of I-71 will start once the southbound side is finished in late November.
Additional street or lane closures below the bridge decks will be needed once demolition is fully underway this fall. Updates will be forthcoming.
Motorists are encouraged to slow down and use caution near the work area.
