Part of NB I-71 will be closed all weekend

Mark Heyne

If you're heading into Downtown this weekend, plan accordingly.

Northbound I-71 is slated to be closed between Reading Rd/Gilbert Ave and Dana this weekend. The closure begins at 10 p.m. Friday, April 17. The highway will reopen around 6 a.m. Monday, April 20.

The closure is part of the new Martin Luther King Drive interchange. Crews will be taking down the Conrail bridge overpass.

Traffic is being detoured to northbound I-75 to eastbound SR 562 (the Norwood Lateral) to I-71.
