Queen City Ave. Sewer Separation
MSD Queen City Avenue Sewer Separation
Queen City Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Sunset Avenue to Queen City Bypass starting in December 2013.
The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) will begin installing stormwater sewers along Queen City Avenue (and cross streets). Work is anticipated to be complete by summer 2014.
The two westbound lanes of Queen City Avenue will be closed, and the two eastbound lanes will be converted to two-way traffic (one lane in each direction).
Construction will occur primarily Monday through Saturday during daylight hours. MSD's construction contractor is Sunesis Construction.
Approximately 3,900 linear feet of new stormwater sewers will be constructed in the public right-of-way along the north side of Queen City Avenue, as well as along Tillie Avenue and Champlain Street. Short legs will also be constructed on Wyoming and Sunset Avenues to prepare for future stormwater sewers on those roadways.
This effort is part of the Lick Run Project to reduce combined sewer overflows (CSOs) into the Mill Creek. The Lick Run Project is part of Project Groundwork, MSD's multi-year plan to reduce sewer overflows into streams and rivers in Hamilton County. Project Groundwork will improve the quality of our lives through cleaner streams, improved protection of public health, and enhancement of the communities where we live, work, and play.
