Get me around Cincinnati!!!

Hope to pick up our trailer from the Mothership next week. Will be coming down I75 heading toward Louisville and would like to avoid all of the construction in and around Cincinnati. Any alternate routes will be greatly appreciated, no matter how out of the way they are!

Thanks

Depends if you want to avoid the interstates or not.

If you want to maximize the time on interstate highways, take I 75 south to I 70 toward Indianapolis, then take 465 south around Indianapolis and hit I 65 which will take you straight into Louisville.

A shorter all-interstate route is to take I 75 down to I 274 which is the ring around Cincinnati. You may run into some slower traffic right before you hit I 274, But it won’t be as bad as going directly through downtown Cincinnati

A more scenic route would be to head west out of Jackson Center on 274 until you get to 127. Turn south. Both of these are very good state highways, but are two lane most of the way. 127 will intersect I 70. Or you can pick up 121 around Greenville and head to Richmond Indiana on a very scenic curvy road, but it may be a bit risky if there’s snow or ice.

Ohio’s major roads are basically set up in a grid pattern. Once you get to Indiana, all of the major roads are in a hub and spoke pattern, with Indianapolis at the center.

I drove both ways through Cincinnati on I 75 in November/December and it was fine.

The other way is to take I-70 to Indy and go south to Louisville from there.

The first time we visited JC we made the mistake of taking the bypass around Cincinnati at rush hour - bad move. Next time we just went through town on a weekend or the middle of the day, don't recall which it was, and things went fine.

Thanks for the suggestions and comments, they are most appreciated. Now if the factory will just finish the work, we can go get our toy!

Problems on I75 generally overrated. We have towed our 33 Classic and older 34 Classic numerous times (at least 10) between northeast TN and family just north of Columbus OH about 25 miles from the Mothership. We have primarily stayed on 75 through downtown and have used the beltway a couple of times. I recommend staying on 75. Try to avoid rush hour, take it slow and easy, leave some room between you and the car ahead but not too much or someone will surely dive in and cut you off. A good strategy is to follow a Semi. They are generally better drivers, travel ata steady speed in heavy traffic and are less likely to do a panic stop..good luck.

This is what I always do in big cities. I find it stops people from cutting in front of you because they don't want to go into a lane behind a semi. Therefore, you can leave a little more room in front of you without others constantly filling your braking zone.

The beltway around Cincinnati is I275 (not I274). Just do not want anyone to get lost!
