Columbia Parkway traffic still restricted by landslides after Monday night storms

CINCINNATI - Columbia Parkway traffic will be restricted past rush hour and into Tuesday evening because of landslides caused by Monday night's storms, the city says.

Only one lane will be open in each direction from Kemper Lane east "about midway to William Howard Taft" until at least 7 p.m., while cleanup continues, according to Rich Pohana of the Traffic and Engineering Department.

Crews have already removed 600 tons of mud and debris from the area, the city said.

Drivers are asked to slow down and use caution when approaching the landslide area, and consider alternate routes if possible.

Columbia Parkway and Riverside Drive near Kemper were closed overnight and reopened Tuesday morning. 

9 On Your Side also received several reports of flooding in Northern Kentucky, particularly in Covington. Most of Euclid Avenue was underwater for hours.
