I clinched it, but not in a single trip. Last section for me was the short segment between the airport and creation museum exits.

Yeah, me too. Every trip I've made to Cincinnati has been from Indiana or Kentucky, and almost always with passengers who aren't interested in a random jaunt around the eastern half.

I have, although not in one go. Once, driving home I did the eastern side (from I-71/75 around counterclockwise to I-74), and then coming back I did the western, with a bit of backtracking the second time to satisfy my clinching rules.

I've used it on the western half in Ohio and the eastern half in Ohio, never used it in Indiana or Kentucky though.

I think the Interstate 275 beltway should have been shorter. At 83.71 miles, it just seems to go all over the place. Was it impossible to build a shorter beltway, such as like the Interstate 270 beltway around Columbus?

Lawrenceburg, IN has remained at the same population since 1950, while the nation as a whole has grown. However, since that number is about 5,000 people, I'm not sure if it was really considered important enough even in 1950.

Originally, it was intended to cross the river on the west side at Cleves, except it was extended out more because Lawrenceburg, IN (and the Indiana side of the Cincy metro in general) wanted access to the beltway and an Ohio River crossing.

I've only been on a quarter of it, but that quarter touched all three states.

Yep, did this about 30 years ago...when I used to live there...and not all in one sitting.
More familiar with the north and west sides. My family used to go out to Lawrenceburg and take highway 50 out to Seymour before heading south to Tennessee on I-65. Later on, we exclusively took I-71, so not sure why we did that.

Living in Cincinnati I've made the loop multiple times, either in chunks or at least twice wound up driving the loop.

At Christmas time 2001 I got on 275 from 75 and headed over to Eastgate for a present, wasn't there, had to go to the Northern Kentucky store, then over to Northgate Mall for something else. Then home after circling the city.

Only two parts.  On the north side, the short stretch between I-75 and I-71, and from US-50 on the east side south then west to I-71/75.

Back in the late 70s, after the final section opened, my buddy and I took the entire circle, just because we could. 

Living in the area, I have been on all sections multiple times, but never again have I done it all at once.

Cleves is already shockingly far west.  Why not cross at Taylorsport, or the airport?

Two issues: development and Cincinnati's topography.

Yes, definitely from my years living in Cincinnati (more specifically, the east side of Cincinnati, Oakley).

The portion I used the MOST was likely from I-71/I-75 to the Airport.

The portion I used the LEAST was likely from I-74 northeast to I-75.

Definitely done the whole thing, but probably not in one sitting. Although... maybe.

That happens to be one of the portions I use pretty often, as I'm in the Mason area of the metro. Pretty much the main routing to connect where I am to I-74 west towards Indy.

My least used portion is the part between the Airport and I-74 along the west loop.
