Congestion on I-75 some of worst in U.S.

Posted By on November 28, 2011

No wonder I instinctively avoid I-75 downtown Cincinnati during rush hour.

Two stretches of I-75 in the Cincinnati area have been identified as being among the 328 most seriously congested in the country in a recent report by the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A&M University.


The single most congested stretch of highway in the area is southbound I-75, from the Interstate 74 exit to West Seventh Street, or exit 1.The 3.4-mile stretch of road connects the area known as Pill Hill, where many of the region’s largest medical centers and universities are located, to downtown Cincinnati.That stretch of road ranked 21st nationally in terms of being unreliable.
