Construction on Cornell Bridge
Cornell Road Bridge Repair
Bridge repair work is scheduled to begin on Cornell Road over Interstate 71 in the cities of Blue Ash and Montgomery on Monday, June 6.
Cornell Road will be closed for 75 days beginning Monday, June 13, with a posted detour using Deerfield Road, East Kemper Road and Snider Road. There will also be various nightly lane closures on I-71 at Cornell Road.
Work on this project is scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2016.
Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming road closure.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through a work zone.
