Streetcar Progress Update: March 28, 2014

Streetcar Progress Update: Week Ending March 28, 2014

Central Parkway trackwork

Trackwork has moved to Central Parkway this week, completing 5,900 feet of straight track in the Over-the-Rhine loop.

MOF masonry work

Masonry work has started at the Maintenance & Operations Facility this week. There is some resemblance of a building taking shape with the installation of door frames.

Streetcar station stop

The Liberty & Elm stop is moving forward. The 14-inch concrete curb for the platform was poured this week. The Cincinnati Streetcar will have level boarding (no step-up), so it will be easily accessible to all people.

Traffic Alerts

  • Work to install water branches of a new main continues on Walnut Street and Main Street. There will be overnight closures (but we're scheduling them to be sure we don't affect Reds traffic too much). Learn more about the closures here.
  • From 6 p.m. NEXT Friday, April 4, to 7 a.m. Monday, April 7, the two left-hand lanes of eastbound Central Parkway will be closed between Race and Walnut Streets for trackwork. Drivers on northbound Vine Street and on eastbound Central Parkway wishing to reach the Gateway Quarter will be detoured to Main Street, then to 12th Street.
