The Loop Ramp Project Is On Track to Open in November
The end of the Loop Ramp Project construction is on the horizon, with an opening date anticipated for early November, weather permitting.
Once the Loop Ramp is complete, drivers will notice less congestion at the Fields- Ertel and Mason-Montgomery intersection as some traffic going northbound will be able to bypass the intersection altogether.

Improvement Work Has Begun
in the Western Row Area
The Kings Island Drive Improvements, part of the Western Row Road Interchange Improvements, are now underway. Currently, one lane of northbound Kings Island Drive is closed through Thursday, September 24, while crews work on installation of an underground storm pipe. The lane should reopen to traffic by 8 p.m. Signage will be placed in the project area to alert drivers of changes to traffic patterns.
All lanes will be open to traffic Friday through Sunday.

The Kings Island Drive Improvements Project involves widening Kings Island Drive to better support incoming traffic off of I-71. Click here to learn more.
This project, along with the
other improvements at the Western Row Interchange are part of a coordinated regional effort that includes the infrastructure improvements in the
Ertel and Mason-Montgomery Road interchange area, as well as State Route 741. This work is expected to significantly relieve congestion for people who travel along I-71 in the northern Hamilton County and southwestern Warren County areas.
Studies show that the
WesternRow Road improvements will reduce I-71 southbound off-ramp traffic at
Northbound I-71 on-ramp traffic at
Ertel will decrease by
24 percent with the completion of the
WesternRow Road Improvements.
