Stay Safe, Stay Off
The City of Cincinnati has received reports that people have been coming onto the Kennedy Connector construction site when crews are not present. This is very unsafe.
The terrain is not suitable for pedestrians or wheeled vehicles. The nature of a construction site of this magnitude calls for the topography to frequently change and the soil is often very loose. Additionally, the equipment used at the site can be dangerous.
Please keep off the construction site for your, and our crew's, safety. If you see suspicious or unauthorized activity on the site please contact Jared McFaddin at Jared.McFaddin@cincinnati-oh.gov or the Cincinnati Police at 513-765-1212.
The Kennedy Connector project will improve the capacity, geometry, and road connectivity in the Ridge Road/Madison Road Corridor. It will do so by creating a new section of Kennedy Avenue that will connect Duck Creek and Madison Roads and will improve connectivity to the Norwood Lateral and I-71. Other area road and infrastructure improvements will be made in the area as part of the project.
