CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio transportation authorities plan to shut down all northbound Interstate 75 lanes during overnight bridge work this week in Cincinnati.

The continuing construction project aimed at increasing capacity and safety on the major north-south highway calls for full closures Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights. The northbound lanes will close from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night between the Mitchell Avenue and Norwood Lateral interchanges just north of downtown.

There will be a single lane closure northbound starting at 8 p.m. Thursday, with two lanes closed at 11 until 6 a.m. Friday.

The Ohio Department of Transportation says weather conditions could change the schedule. Arrow boards and signs will advise motorists.

Authorities are still investigating a Jan. 19 overpass collapse onto southbound I-75 that killed one bridge demolition worker.
