Northbound I-71/75 uses the lower deck -- Covington entrance ramp visible at right.
This entrance ramp originally merged with through traffic at this point.  The lower
deck's emergency shoulder was eliminated in 1986, and this ramp has since formed the
4th lane. 

View of north end of bridge -- downtown Cincinnati is to the right of this photo.
The I-71/75 split and U.S. 50 interchange is immediately north of the bridge.  Drivers often
    do not realize they are in the wrong lane until this point, and so the scene is often chaotic.
