( Kenton County, Kentucky ) - Drivers on I-75 in northern Kentucky will have lane closures to deal with in the Cut-in-the-Hill late Thursday night into early Friday morning.
Starting at 10pm Thursday, a paving project will begin that will close the left two lanes on the southbound side of I-75 from the Brent Spence Bridge to about Kyles Lane, mile marker 189. KYTC crews will be installing "NO TRUCKS THIS LANE" markers in those left two southbound lanes heading up the Cut-in-the-Hill. The work should be complete by 5am Friday morning.
Drivers should watch for lane closures, crews, and equipment. There's also a possibility that the bottleneck at the bridge could cause traffic to back up onto the Ohio side of the river.
Then, work is scheduled to begin Saturday night on the Brent Spence Bridge. Starting at 10pm on April 21, northbound I-75 will be reduced to two lanes on the bridge for "minor roadway repairs." Also, the entrance ramp from 4th Street in Covington will be closed. The work is expected to last until 10pm on Sunday, April 22.
Drivers should expect delays if they're headed north across the bridge during that period.
