I-75 thru Cincinnati has been completely repaired and when I came thru there in late April was very smooth.


Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.

If it were me, I would just take the by-pass around it and be done with it. We also went thru in April and the bridge was down to one lane going up I75 and backed-up for an hour. Guess you throw the dice and take your chances.

GOIN THROUGH CINCY ON 75 IS NEVER EASY. We do it often both ways to Norris Lake and back. We used the brige in May they are still working on it. Going around can be better but not always. Avoid rush hour if you can. Going south we went right through coming North we had about a 40 min delay. There is still a lot of construction on the bridge and 75 in Cincy.

US 68 is a decent road that we've taken to avoid Cincinnati.

Take 275 west around town. I-75 through Cincinnati is a train wreck. The road surface will destroy your camper. The lanes have been moved and shifted so many times you pretty much have to guess where you should be in the road. They are also currently painting the Brence Spence bridge which creates backups everyday. Most days with traffic I-275 won’t lengthen your travel time at all.

One of the few times I've been really in a pickle while towing was 71/75 merge before the bridge, came through maintaining my lane the whole way due to rush hour traffic, went from middle lane to ramp to left lane to lane ended, who ends a left lane?!? The only other situation I've felt was that messed up was 75 south through Atlanta, at one point you were merged in from the left and had to get to the right to stay on 75, across 8 lanes in a few miles. It was insane to do that in a thunderstorm in a van, can't imagine what it would have been like with a trailer. I'm glad they've redone that area since and now I just take the HOV lane to bypass all the craziness.
