Streetcar work means more lane closures downtown

CINCINNATI -- More streets will be shut down as crews continue work on the Cincinnati streetcar.

Duke Energy will start work Monday on two electric manholes at Sixth and Main Streets.

Officials said it will take about four weeks to complete the job. Two lanes will be maintained on each street during the project with lane shifts.

It will also mean a closure starting Friday night at 7 p.m. through Saturday at 7 p.m. so crews can prepare for a water main tie-in.

Drivers will have to detour east on Fifth Street, north on Broadway and west onto Sixth Street. Detour signs will be posted and sidewalks and crosswalks will remain open.

Residents who want to get an update on the substation designs should head to the public library on Tuesday.

The library will host a question and answer session from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday for people to talk about the streetcar substations at Court and Walnut streets.
