I-71 closure doesn't deter motorists
CINCINNATI (Brad Underwood) -- People are sitting in traffic this weekend due to I-71 southbound being closed from the Dana Avenue exit to Taft Street.
Traffic is backed up along 71 southbound near Kennedy Avenue as drivers wait to detour across the Norwood Lateral.
Thousands are expected near downtown Saturday night for Lumenocity at Washington Park and the Blues Festival at Sawyer Point, but despite the closure, many people had little problems getting to their destination because they planned ahead.
Many drivers got off at the Norwood Lateral, others got off a little bit earlier at Kennedy Heights or Ridge.
I-71 has been closed since Friday night and will remain closed until Monday morning at 5 a.m.
If you have to travel on 71 south, the suggested detour is the Norwood Lateral over to I-75.
