CINCINNATI – Sycamore Street will be closed between 13th and 14th streets this Saturday, Dec. 3, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. so crews may dismantle and remove a 100-ton crawler crane from the construction site 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.
The crane has been on site since late September to assist construction crews renovating and expanding Ziegler Park.
The park is 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 early next month. Work on the park is slated to finish by early next summer.
