New work on streetcar to shut down part of Main Street in downtown Cincinnati

CINCINNATI -- A portion of Main Street in the Central Business District will be closed throughout the weekend as work continues on the city's streetcar project.

Crews plan to close the roadway between Fifth and Sixth streets at 7 p.m. Friday so they can tie in a new water main. 

One lane of Main Street will reopen at 7 p.m. Saturday and remain open for the rest of the weekend. All lanes will be reopened by 6 a.m. Monday, according to the city.

Motorists should detour east on Fifth Street, north on Broadway and west on Sixth Street. Detour signs will be posted.
