CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Work to improve the interchange of Interstate 71 and Pfeiffer Road to greatly enhance travel during peak commute periods is scheduled to begin Monday, Jan. 7. The I-71/ Pfeiffer interchange serves major regional employment centers in Montgomery and Blue Ash.
The project will improve travel in several ways:
Northbound access onto I- 71 from eastbound Pfeiffer Road will move more vehicles quickly through dual, dedicated left-turn lanes; a new auxiliary lane will facilitate travel from Pfeiffer Road via northbound I-71 directly to the I-275 exit. Also, motorists entering I-71 northbound from Pfeiffer Road will no longer need to merge into through-lanes on I-71 if they are connecting to I-275. This dedicated lane will greatly benefit all motorists traveling on northbound I-71 by substantially reducing the current volume of traffic merging from Pfeiffer’s entrance ramp.
