ATTENTION: I-71/75 Bridge Maintenance Expect Traffic Delays!

Starting June 23, 2017, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) will be managing routine maintenance on the Brent Spence Bridge for approximately 60 days. There will be multiple lane closures that will impact traffic on and around the bridge. Phase I of the maintenance will have the I-71/75 Entrance Ramp from 4th Street in Covington closed. Motorists will still be able to use the 4th Street Exit during this phase to reach the Convention Center. Drivers should plan to adjust their travel time expectations and when possible, use detour routes, I-471 or the I-275 outer belt to avoid long delays while the major lane closures are in place.
