It's not that bad as long as you don't pick rush hour as the time to cross!

I-65 in Louisville

Twice in a week on the way to and from Florida. If not far out of your way, I'd take Cinci any day. That darn 65 is still horrible. 75 and 74 are much smoother in my opinion.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

If not rush hour it is fine. I have been through there many times this spring and summer with the RV and car in tow.
Just need to read the signs carefully and ignore GPS. Ramps are constantly changing with the construction.

I drove across it today (in a car) but as long as you miss rush hour and observe the signs, you shouldn't have a problem. Lanes are shifted almost daily and the ramps are closed and reopened in a different configuration almost as often. As mentioned, don't depend on a GPS.

Enjoyed the city but dealing with the construction wasn't much fun

I took 75/74/465/65/69 up to North Indiana about a month ago.

Coming back to Florida 69/465/65/24/75. Rolled right through Louisville.

69 was the worst, but they were doing a lot of "skim" resurfacing should be decent by now.
