Not saying that other places aren't worse, but there are some highway merges in Ohio that were just so poorly constructed that they really back up traffic and are an accident waiting to happen. Trying to merge onto 71 from 270 is one. Trying to merge onto 75 from 275 is another. Whenever I see roads being worked on I chuckle knowing that the bushes are being watered while the building is burning down. ODOT needs to step their game up.

The junction of Ronald Reagan Highway and I-75 is the most complex, incomplete interchange I've ever seen. When heading south on I-75, there is no on ramp onto RR, You have to off on Galbraith, drive through a speed to access the highway. When heading west on RR, you also have to use Galbraith to access 75 north.



Come to think of it, Ronald Reagan highway has ZERO complete high speed interchanges with any of the interstates it crosses. I-71 was the site of a deadly interchange that was more suited for an arterial road, but that was just vastly improved recently by adding another stop light. Yes, a stop light.



Cincinnati has dropped the ball 3 times on having a true East-West connection through Hamilton or Butler County.

Not sure what Cincinnati or any of the local municipalities have to do with that. Any sort of interstate connector is the purview of the State, not the local governments.

These are State Route Expressways, not interstates. so correction, Ohio has dropped the ball numerous times, designing an efficient east-west route through the Cincinnati region.

I just drove that way about 2 weeks ago, pretty horrible!

Whoever designed the intersection from the eastbound Norwood Lateral (Ohio 562) to I-71 should be shot. It's been "improved" so many times over the past 35 years, but still is a mess.

And what is this Ronald Reagan Highway of which you speak?

There is and has been - and probably always will be - a lot of NIMBY going on in the various municipalities in the path(s) of all the *ahem* Cross County Highway proposal(s) that have surfaced over the decades.

The cross county highway ends at Montgomery Rd. and does not go all the way to I-275 because of the Indian hill people.
