A new I-71 Uptown Interchange at Martin Luther King Drive would address significant access issues in the area. The project will reconfigure the exit ramps as well as some of the local roads. The recommended preferred alternative can be seen here. In January 2013, the Ohio’s Transportation Review Advisory Council approved spending $2.4 million for detailed design, the second of four steps toward completing the project. As of July 2013, the detailed design had not been completed for the project. The next step is to acquire the necessary right-of-way. The timeline for right-of-way acquisition and construction is still uncertain. It is unlikely that right-of-way acquisition would be complete before sometime in 2014 or possibly 2015. This puts construction likely to begin in 2015 or later.
