CINCINNATI - Drivers trying to avoid heavy traffic on Edwards Road in Oakley due to the construction of the new Rookwood Exchange development project will notice new road closure signs on several side streets.
The temporary barricades are located on Hyde Park, Arbor and Atlantic avenues, closing off access to and from Edwards Road.
City leaders approved the temporary road closure signs at the Edwards Road intersections after listening to concerns from residents regarding traffic congestion and speed.
Brian Ferry of Oakley noticed a difference soon after the signs went up.
"The no outlet sign went up a couple of days after the barricades down at the beginning of the street so people are realizing and learning they can't cut through, so we have seen the traffic cut in half at least not more," Ferry said.
