CINCINNATI (AP) -- Leaders of an Ohio college are worried about a highway project that could choke off easy access to the campus for many students.
Cincinnati State Technical and Community College is a commuter school near Interstate 75 that has about 10,500 students. All live off campus, and most work.
A project meant to make I-75 safer and less confusing for drivers would eliminate some ramps. One is a Central Parkway ramp off Interstate 74, used by many for school access.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports ( http://cin.ci/MZaZAv ) officials think making access more complicated will reduce enrollment that has been growing in recent years.
The ramp elimination doesn't begin until 2024, and there is a potential alternative connector. But it would cost at least $20 million, and there's no funding lined up.
