I just came through Cincinnati today about around afternoon rush hour. South on I-71 and wanting to go south onto I-75.

Any experts know of the best route? I'm through it now. But following a navigator is useless unless that navigator is a human. Tunnel 71 was closed and a lot of the ramps to 71 were closed today too.

I managed to get through it but it was through a great bit of tourist section of town. You know, people everywhere on foot walking about wondering what the hell this semi is doing coming through here kind of thing. Cars parked in the right lane on skinny roads. Lot of fun I tell ya.

The construction signs just said "I-71 south closed, find alternate route". Really? You not gonna offer any help or point the way?

Went under no less than three 13-6 bridges. That was close. Managed to finally get back on 75 before the bridge. But I was having to navigate by general direction only there for a bit as the GPS kept trying to get me back on 71 north and then get back off for a turn around. Which would only put me back in the same problem.

Just curious as to what I should have done? Stay on the outer loop?

I have taken the 275 around, it's adds on some miles and eats up a little bit of time, but at least I was rolling, instead of watching my clock burn in grid lock

I would go with either Samuel or Miracleofmagick advice. Lot of construction going through the heart of Cincinnati the last year+

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

We use 275 if not going through in the middle of the night.
