About The Study







Progress Update:

A Public Meeting for the Uptown Access Study was held on Thursday, October 17, 2013. See the Meetings page for more details.


This website will introduce you to the I-71 access study for the Uptown area. The website provides information on the activities you might expect over the next few months. In addition, it includes information on the planning and engineering studies currently underway. Your ideas are greatly appreciated at any time and will help determine the course of this project.


In 2006, the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI), in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), the City of Cincinnati, and numerous community organizations, completed the Uptown Study, a comprehensive look at transportation needs throughout Uptown. As part of an overall transportation strategy, this study included a recommendation for consideration of improved access to and from I-71 in the vicinity of Martin Luther King Drive and/or McMillan Street and Taft Road. The current Uptown Access Study seeks to build upon the previous study by considering the I-71 access issue in detail.
