CINCINNATI – Freedom Way will be closed between Race and Rosa Parks streets from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, March 17, so crews may pour concrete for a parking structure under construction at The Banks.
Motorists heading east on Freedom Way will be detoured north at Race, east on Second, south on Rosa and east again on Freedom Way. Motorists heading west on Freedom Way will be detoured north on Rosa Parks/Vine, west on Third, south on Race and west again on Freedom. Detour signage will be posted on site.
On-street parking will be prohibited along this stretch of Freedom Way during the closure. In addition, sidewalks on both sides of the street will be closed. Detour signage will direct pedestrians via Second Street.
The contractor has been granted a waiver to allow for nighttime construction.
This work is part of Phase IIIA infrastructure improvements at The Banks, which include the creation of 690 parking spaces and a one-block extension of Race Street south of Freedom Way.
The project is slated to finish by the end of 2016.
