Kentucky Roads - I-471

Southbound across the beautiful golden arches from Cincinnati to McDonald's... I mean Kentucky, second and last photos courtesy Doug Kerr. I'm a sucker for extravagant overpasses; this one is between Exits 2 and 3 (US 27 and KY 1892).

Speaking of Exit 3, this and the photo atop the page are on KY 1892 EB approaching Exit 3. In this photo, KY 1892 turns right onto Grand Ave. (which is also to the left) in an area undergoing heavy redevelopment as Cincinnati's suburbs try to keep pace with urban redevelopment.

Finishing up the SB photos, first one courtesy H.B. Elkins and last one courtesy Doug Kerr. I don't know how to tell you this, KYTC, but see those I-71 and I-75 shields? Those should be part of the sign. And the same size as the I-275 shield. And there should be room for them. (Well, okay, H.B. informed me that they're really detour shields for when I-71 was closed in Cincinnati. But why are they still up in 2009?) Oh, and I'm sure there's something wrong with the "I-471 ENDS" sign.

Back northbound into Ohio again, with the 1st, 2nd, and 4th photos courtesy Doug Kerr. The arch is for Highland Ave.

Looking west at the Newport Southbank Bridge, a former rail bridge used for pedestrians, painted purple, and therefore called the Purple People Bridge by locals who just ate it up. The US 27 Taylor Southgate Bridge is behind it.
