CINCINNATI -- Construction on the track bed for the Cincinnati streetcar may slow you down this week.

Elm Street will be down to one lane between 12th and 14th streets beginning Monday. That stretch of roads is between Music Hall and Washington Park.

Workers have to remove stone pavers along Elm Street for cleaning and storage. The left-hand lane will remain open, and traffic will be maintained. The Elm Street entrance to the Washington Park Garage will also remain open at this time.

According to CincyStreetcar Blog,14th Street will be closed between Central Parkway and Race Street for sewer work.

Exact timetables for the construction projects were not released.

The first streetcar tracks are planned to be installed this October along Elm Street in front of Music Hall, according to the blog.
