My rig is similar to kacnps'; 23' pulled with a Toyota V8. I just made the trip through Cincinnati last week, north and south, with no trouble on the cut in the hill on I-75. Other than rush hour traffic at 4 PM on Tuesday I didn't have any issues. Take your time, stay in the middle lane so others can get around you. Taking the bypass will add 20 miles/minutes to the trip (at best). If there's construction it will be even longer. There's a chance of accidents on any road you take.

Anytime I go through Cincinnati (I used to live there too, 8 years ) I go I-75 straight through and avoid the morning and evening rush hours. Personally, I fear I-75 in northern KY more than in Cincinnati. I traveled that road a lot over the last 25 years and I always felt better south of I-71 or north of the bridge. In between there's just a lot of discourteous drivers.

If tolls are not a problem then 77 to 64 is Okay. 77 Is The West Virginia turnpike with toll booths. Narrow booths but not reall a problem, use the truck lanes. Last time we were through Charlston where 77and 64 meet it wasokay. We only go as far as Asland where we pick up 23 south but have taken 23 all the way to Columbus. We crossed 35 somewhere in Ohio I believe. It's doable.

If you take Avionstream's route to Ashland,Ky., get on I-64 west to Grayson,then take the JOHN Y.BROWN AA HWY (HWY 9) which will take you to Alexandria, Ky. From there,
you can connect to various roads to Cincinnati depending on your final destination.
Good road with little traffic.
