Liberty Street: Temporary Closure At Elm

Temporary Closure: Liberty Street At Elm Street

Jan. 16 - 21, 2014

Track installation is taking place along Elm Street in Over-the-Rhine for the Cincinnati Streetcar project.

Liberty Street will be closed at Elm Street from Thursday, Jan. 16 (at 9 a.m.) to Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014 (at 7 a.m.).

One northbound lane of Elm Street will remain open; however, traffic traveling east- and westbound on Liberty Street will be detoured around the site.

Crews will work during that period to install track across the intersection. This extra effort is being undertaken to minimize a lengthy disruption to traffic on Liberty Street.

The bulk of the work will occur Thursday through Sunday, with Monday reserved for the concrete track bed to cure. This closure and associated work is weather-dependent.

Detours will be clearly posted. Local access to nearby businesses and residences will be maintained.

Motorists and bicyclists should slow down and use caution when approaching the work area.
