CINCINNATI – Sycamore Street will be closed between 13th and 14th streets this Saturday, Oct. 1, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. so crews may set up a 100-ton crawler crane at Ziegler Park.
Motorists traveling north on Sycamore will be detoured west on 13th, north on Main, east on 14th and north again on Sycamore. Motorists traveling south on Sycamore will be detoured east at 14th, south on Broadway, west on 13th and south again on Sycamore.
Detour signage will be posted on site to help direct motorists and pedestrians. Local access to businesses and residences will be allowed.
Bus patrons should check Metro’s detour page at www.go-metro.com for updates.
The crane will be on site through December to assist construction crews renovating and expanding Ziegler Park located on the eastern edge of Over-the-Rhine, adjacent to the old School for Creative & Performing Arts and south of the Peaslee Neighborhood Center. The $30 million project includes a new aquatic center, deep-water pool, sprayground, playground, basketball courts, green space and an underground parking garage.
The 400-space garage is scheduled to open in December. Work on the park is slated to finish by early next summer.
