I finally did it on my third visit to Cincinnati spanning 12 years, although really the first ended up being unnecessary for this venture.

I see the historical reasons above for going into Indiana but it seems so unnecessary.

SM-T290

It may be unnecessary, but it is a fun quirk to the route and hopefully another time I'll get to drive that section. It gives Indiana a 3DI where its parent doesn't even enter its borders.
Something interesting about 3dis in Indiana, all of the 2di in the state except I-65 and I-69 doesn’t have a 3di in the state, but have one in another state each 2di travels. That’s 6 2di (64, 70, 74, 80, 90, 94).

Well, of course I-64 used to have a child in Evansville, but it changed its name.

Interstate 294 originally continued into Indiana prior to Interstates 90 and 94 swapping places. The Chicago Skyway and the western-most 21 miles of the Indiana Toll Road was part of Interstate 94, not 90, which followed 94's route between those two junctions. The Interstate 80/94 duplex from Exit 0 (Illinois) to Exit 16 (Indiana) was an Interstate 80/90/294 triplex. Interstate 294 was retracted to its present terminus when 90 and 94 were moved to their present alignments in 1965. I think Interstate 294 never should have entered Indiana in the first place.

I just did it in one fell swoop tonight, took me about a hour and twenty minutes.  started at the CVG airport exit and did a full loop.  construction on the NE side slowed me down a bit but still a pleasant drive in the late evening.

In case you're wondering what the construction on the NE side is for, they're adding a SmartLane between US 42 (exit 46) and Loveland-Maderia (exit 52). It's an extra lane that will only be accessible when speeds in the other lanes are below a certain speed. Hopefully, they can extend this SmartLane west to US 27 or US 127, and east to OH 28 or OH 32 in the future; I-275 gets congested to both points a lot.

^ From what I read, it will be open fully during peak times, not only when speeds drop below a certain speed. Essentially, the hours would be fixed, not varying.

At least Ohio now acknowledges that it's OK for rules to change during peak on highways. 15-20 years ago that wasn't the case.
