CINCINNATI – Crews have begun $2.15 million in rehabilitation work on Boudinot, Augusta and Phoenix avenues in Westwood. The project, which includes upgrades to nearly 11 lane miles, is funded as part of the city’s Capital Acceleration Plan (CAP).
The work on Boudinot is taking place between Westwood Northern Boulevard and Glenway Avenue. The work on Augusta and Phoenix runs east-west from North Bend Road to Boudinot.

- Replace curbs and curb ramps
- Repair driveway aprons and sidewalks, as needed
- Adjust utility castings to grade
Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Crews may work additional hours up until 11:00 p.m., including Saturdays, if needed.
At least two lanes on Boudinot will remain open to through traffic at all times. Augusta and Phoenix avenues may be closed intermittently to through traffic. Local access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times.
All lanes will be open to through traffic during non-work hours.
On-street parking will be prohibited, as needed, to accommodate crews. Signs will be posted in advance to allow motorists time to find alternate parking options.
Work is expected to wrap up by mid-August. However, construction schedules can change due to weather or unforeseen field conditions. Updates will be sent, if needed.

About the Capital Acceleration Plan (CAP)
The City of Cincinnati’s Capital Acceleration Plan (CAP) is an effort to save taxpayer money by investing in streets and city vehicles to eliminate costly, long-term maintenance and repairs. The City will get at least 150 new rehabilitated lane miles and 80 miles of preventative maintenance per calendar year as a result of this program. A lane mile is 10 feet wide by 5,280 feet.
