Streetcar Progress Update: April 4, 2014

Streetcar Progress Update: Week Ending April 4, 2014

The Cincinnati Streetcar made its "maiden voyage" through Over-the-Rhine on Monday!

Vehicle parade float

Students from St. Veronica School constructed this huge replica for the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade. They even matched the vehicle detailing!

Straight trackwork

The last straight track concrete pour in OTR was completed this week between rain showers. To date, 6,140 feet of track have been poured.

MOF short track

About 35 feet of track was laid in the Maintenance & Operations Facility this week. This short section of track will serve as an area for axle storage inside the MOF.

Stop 7

Work began this week on Stop #7 at Washington Park. Granite curb and pavers were removed to make way for the new granite platform.

Traffic Alerts

  • There will be overnight closures next week on Main Street for streetcar-related water work. The street will be closed between 3rd and 4th streets each night, Sunday-Wednesday. Learn more about the closures here.
