Beechmont Avenue reopens after landslide

CINCINNATI – Once Duke Energy crews wrapped up work, police reopened Beechmont Avenue at 8:15 p.m. Sunday following an early-morning landslide caused by the weekend’s heavy rains.

After clearing the road and maintaining the hillside, Duke said its crews had to remove a utility pole and install a new one. The road had been closed since about 7:30 a.m.

Police said they will continue to monitor the condition of the hillside.
