Lexington, KY to Xenia, OH via US68?

Coming from Texas (Class C without towing) through Kentucky to visit relatives in Ohio and then on to Michigan. (planning on taking three-four days for the TX to Ohio leg)

Will cross the Mississippi near Dyersburg and travel on the parkways to Lexington. We want to avoid Louisville and possibly Cincinnati.

Looking at a map I see Highway 68. Was thinking that maybe we could take this road and see some scenic areas of Kentucky and cross into Ohio near Marysville. But don't want to take too much time.

Can anyone give me any advice on this route or suggestions? Any construction or traffic problems?

If we go through Cincinnati we would take the eastern loop around and travel on IH-71.

I am the planner in our little family of two retired persons. My husband just gets antsy and wants to get where he is going. I try to tell him that it's the journey, not the destination.

Using US 68 vs I-75, I-275, I-71, only adds about 50 minutes to the trip. You will of course have cross traffic, towns, speed limit changes, etc. to deal with. US 68 shows no construction delays, I-75 has a few just north of Lexington.

I 75 also has construction delays near 35 which is how you would go to Xenia if you were to stay on 75 so definitely avoid 75.
