I-71 South Of Cincinnati

We travel from Michigan to Gulf Shores Alabama and go I-69 to I-65.
This year I would like to take I-75 to I-71 south of Cincinnati to I-65 south I see construction on 71 just south of Cincinnati has anyone traveled this route recently that could give me a heads up ?
We will be traveling in a 36' class A pusher pulling a jeep.

Traffic is always 'interesting' from Dayton through to the I-75/71 split south of Florence, KY. Very heavy volume can move at posted speeds then suddenly come to a dead stop due to a fender bender on the other side of the highway. There are construction tie-ups on the section of I-75/71 from the Ohio River Bridge south to Cresent Hills. I'd pay attention to traffic advisories on OHGO This could be avoided in Downtown Cinti by taking Ft. Washington Way to I-471 south to I-275, then West to I-75/71 just south of the construction on I-75/71 between the river and I-275. I'd only do it if the tie-ups seem to be extremely bad. In any case, just shake it off and don't let it get your blood pressure up, treat it as fodder for future campfire stories.

Try to avoid coming through during morning and afternoon rush hours.

Check with https://www.navbug.com/traffic_condi...lle.htm#popmap as you come into West Chester, OH. You can then decide to go around on I-275 W or through the city.

The added miles that it would take to use I-275 W around Cincinnati could be a useful route if there's a catastrophic delay inside the I-275 loop. In general, the slowest traffic is always on the 'cut in the hill' south of the Ohio River and climbing back up towards I-275, which is where the construction delays are.

I-71 South Of Cincinnati

Just drove this route over the weekend. I would also suggest going around the city for two reasons, besides the traffic.

1). Very narrow lanes in construction zone on I-75 just inside I-275 on the northern side of town

2). Worse is that 2 lanes are completely closed on 71/75 for months on the Kentucky side about 5 miles south of the river but before 275.

Going around the city is scenic and peaceful. We did in the spring and it will get you to I-71 south of Cincinnati quicker and safer.
