Re: King's Island travel time to GABP
I live out that way. 4:30 is probably safe.
Coming southbound down I-71 on a Friday evening can get rather trafficky. Particularly from about Fields-Ertel (just outside the I-275 outerbelt) down about to Red Bank (stop and go on a 3 lane interstate). After Red Bank it usually clears up and moves along to downtown.
If everything goes decently, you can make it in 30-40 minutes from KI to downtown. But I-71 traffic is volatile and wrecks (which are commonplace) can instantly add 30-60 minutes.
And if nothing goes wrong, you arrive at the ballpark early. Which is not a bad thing at all.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
