Hopple Street overpass collapses – shuts down I-75 South

The overpass at the Hopple Street Exit has closed I-75 Southbound for at least 48 hours, according to Cincinnati Police Chief  Blackwell. 1 person killed (construction worker) and 1 injured (truck driver). Be sure to get alternate routes to work and leave very early. This closure will affect every Greater Cincinnati interstate and many of the surface roads for at least a couple of days. The part of the overpass that collapsed was the older overpass that was going to be removed. This is not the brand new structure that was just built. Investigation pending, no further details at this time.
