CINCINNATI – Eastbound East Court Street between Walnut and Main will be closed for 10 days beginning at 6:00 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13, so crews can dig a trench and install conduit to power the Cincinnati Streetcar. The conduit will carry cables linking the streetcar track on Main Street to the traction power substation on East Court at Walnut.
Main Street will remain open while work is under way but will have lane restrictions between Ninth and East Court streets. Motorists traveling on Walnut will be detoured east on Seventh Street and north on Main.
Pedestrian access on the south side of East Court will be maintained, as well as all crosswalks. On-street parking on the south side will be prohibited during the closure. Parking on the north side will remain open.
Detour signage will be posted.
This stretch of East Court Street is scheduled to reopen by 6:00 a.m. Monday, Feb. 23.
