Hi! My wife and I will be moving for work in a couple of weeks. I'll be working in Oakley. We looked at a lot of houses/apartments over the last few days (wow its hot!) and found what we felt was the best fit for us in Florence. My question is-----If I have to be at work at 7am, which will put me on the bridge at about 630 or 645, how bad is the traffic coming across typically? I will be leaving work about 4pm-5pm daily as well. Does anyone make this drive now?

Thanks!!!

It doesn't built that much that early. You will be fine. Another hour you will have to tack on 20 mins.

I drive a truck all over the Cincinnati/NKY area, I would not live in Florence if I had to be on the Ohio side every day. Traffic on I-75/71 gets really slow at times between Florence and the bridge, moreso on the northbound side. Also there are plans to replace the Brent Spence bridge at some point, this may cause a traffic nightmare for more than a few years, this will include about 50 miles of relocated lanes, ramps and side streets and the demolition of a few buildings.

If you want to live in Kentucky the best place would be Highland Heights, there is currently construction work being done on I-471 so that will make it unlikely to need more in the future. Besides it puts you right on I-71 not too far from Oakley.

If it were me and I had to work in Cincinnati I would live as close as possible, for some reason 1" of snow brings traffic to a standstill.

I heard about replacing the bridge....we will only be there for a year so that won't impact us.

At the time of day you are expecting the traffic should be reasonable. If you are only expecting one year I would go for it.

Just out of curiosity, if you're working in Oakley, what made you choose Florence?

We have two kids very young (2 and 3) and need some space for them...cost was definitely a consideration because we still have a house in Columbus we are going to sell. Florence was the best we saw keeping cost what it needed to be while not sacrificing what we felt was safety.

A very good response, not that you owed one. Having an existing house to sell must be enough of a trauma right now. I assume since you are anticipating only a year you will be renting. Florence should provide a pleasant environment for the wife and the little ones. Hope your year in Cincinnati is a pleasant one.

Even though posted on a public forum it is a private decision. People are not required to bare their souls just because they post here. Yours was a veiled attempt to inquire if you are going to work in Oakley why not live in Oakley or closeby. I can think of at least a dozen reasons which I will not expound upon since we do not need more controversy. Just let these people and their 2 kids come to Cincinnati and experience what will hopefully be a good period in their lives.
