ST. BERNARD, Ohio (AP) - The relocation of Interstate 75 may have snuffed out a suburban Cincinnati village’s annual Independence Day fireworks display.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1LAuPkV ) the relocation has forced St. Bernard to build a new service garage at the site where fireworks have been launched in recent years. That means there’s no place in the village where fireworks can legally be detonated without street closures.

Village Service Director Phil Stegman says closing major roads for up to an hour for the display isn’t really an option. He says the village is very landlocked and doesn’t have a lot of open space.

The village has spent up to $25,000 annually on the display.
