Madison, Ridge Lane Closures
Lane Closures Coming to Madison, Ridge Roads
Kennedy Connector Project continues to progress
Motorists can expect lane closures on two roads that are part of the City of Cincinnati’s Kennedy Connector project. The curb lane of westbound Madison Road will close on Monday (Dec. 17, 2012) and the curb lane of southbound Ridge Road will close on Wednesday (Dec. 19, 2012).
Wednesday’s closure of the lane on Ridge's approach to Ibsen Avenue will take place for three days. Construction crews will be adding pavement to the new turn lane from southbound Ridge to Ibsen. The turn lane was made possible by the rerouting of Ibsen.
On Monday, the curb lane of westbound Madison will be closed between Steel Place and Ridge. That closure is expected to last for about two weeks as work is done to add new pavement that eventually will connect Madison to the new Kennedy Connector that is the major focus of this project.
About The Kennedy Connector
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.
