CINCINNATI — Work on the Lick Run Greenway will shut down part of Queen City Avenue for up to 12 hours Saturday.

Queen City between Harrison Avenue and Beekman Street in South Fairmount will close to thru traffic from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. to restore the roadway after installation of new storm sewers, according to the Metropolitan Sewer District.

Traffic will be detoured to Harrison Avenue or Beekman Street via Tremont Street. See the map below.

Queen City Avenue closure Saturday.

Access to the BP station, Family Dollar store and Immanuel United Church of Christ on Queen City will be maintained from Harrison Avenue only.

Northbound State Street will remain open through the intersection with Queen City Avenue. Southbound State Street remains closed for construction activities.

Construction of the project began in July 2017 and will continue into spring 2020, pending weather and field conditions. The $90 million Greenway includes a mile-long bioengineered creek in a park-like setting through the valley corridor.

Several other project-related traffic changes are in place:

  • Southbound State Avenue is closed between the ramp from Harrison Avenue and Queen City Avenue.
  • Quebec Road is closed between Westwood and Queen City avenues.
  • White Street is closed between Westwood and Queen City avenues.

In addition, work requires various temporary lane restrictions along Queen City, Westwood Avenu, and adjacent streets for new storm sewers and other construction.
