I would like to avoid some of I-75 anyway and was thinking about going across I-10 and cutting up through Alabama, eventually catching I-65 and taking that to Louisville and cutting back over to I-75. How is the bridge work around Louisville? Have heard some horror stories about that area also.

Tips, suggestions??
Drove thru Atlanta on Wed. 4-20 @ 11:00 am had no problems stopped at Gatlinburg for 3 nights continued north to Ohio only problem was bridge repair at mile 122 about a 45min backup.

Was in Cincinnati yesterday and it is a mess. The downtown has construction both ways, down to two lanes north bound. Construction starts just north of the 75 bridge and continues. Recommend taking 275 east around. For northbound, taking 275 west requires a backed up get off at 75 north with the off ramp and the get on ramp crossing each other. The engineer who created that mess should be shot!
Dayton has construction also where 75 passes over downtown. If heading north, after passing mall area, get in middle lane and stay there. Right lane eventually closed. Parts of the highway are extremely rough. Once north of downtown area, all lanes open up again.
75 north of Troy, OH, right hand lane is closed.
For us, best time to get through Atlanta is after 7 in the evening or before 4 in the morning. Still traffic but not as bad as rush hour.
Have a safe trip. Weather looks be clear for the weekend.

There is construction on 75 in Cincy, but if not during rush hour or travel on a weekend, you should be fine. Do it all the time. Follow Treelady's advice through Dayton (center lane). North of Troy there is bridge construction, but 2 lanes are open north and south (split lane north), this I do everyday and never a backup.

I don't wish that drive on anyone. Been there done that but not with a TT.
