Just drove the coach/toad through there a couple days ago. My GPS had no warning either, (Rand McNally).
I followed the signs, ended up on the downtown curve to second bridge, as shown in screen shot in previous post. The big trucks were going that direction, so though not exactly a comfortable drive, I knew it was safe if I went with them.
We made it OK, time consuming, but what did help is going through in the middle of the night wee hours. Would have been murder at 5pm! It was just us and the overnight OTR drivers.
Cincinnati has always been nerve racking, although a bit better than it used to be....still don't enjoy going through there.

Glad you made it through safely! Love your screen name, by the way. Deuce-and-a-quarter. Great memories from my teenage years!!!

Not surprising, for the most part, GPS's aren't that up to date with the very latest traffic information. I've noticed that sometimes speed limits have been changed, but the GPS is wrong.
That's why in addition to our MH's built-in Rand McNally GPS, I usually keep Waze or Google Maps running on my phone for the latest traffic & construction info.

Thank you! We are partially through the second restore job on my dad's (my car now) 225 he bought new. 1962 two door coupe convertible, black/red interior/white top/401 engine.
Take care and safe travels!

Good points, I think I'll do the same. Heard good things about the WAZE app.
Thanks, take care and safe travels.

Google maps is detouring me around 471. Its about 10 miles longer. I would expect my garmin with live traffic woul do the same.

Agreed! That was my point above. I'm really disappointed that this is not the case.

I will be proud to share that when the time comes! It will likely be over at the "goooodmorning" thread. Come on over and join the group, we'd be happy to have you aboard!
Meantime, here's a grainy pic of her after restore #1 in 1988.
