CINCINNATI – Fourth Street will be closed between Main and Sycamore from 7:00 p.m. Friday, July 31, till 6:00 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3, so crews may install track on Main Street for the Cincinnati Streetcar.
One through lane will remain open on Main Street, as well as the westbound turn lane onto Fourth. Pedestrian access also will be maintained.
Motorists traveling on Fourth Street will be detoured south at Sycamore, west on Third, north on Main and west again on Fourth.
Detour signage will be posted.
Cincinnati Reds’ Fans: Those attending home games this weekend are encouraged to use alternate routes to and from Great American Ball Park.
Crews are expected to finish all remaining track work for the streetcar by November. The last major stretches to be constructed are on Main Street from Fourth to Fifth and the curved piece that connects to Second Street. Track from Fourth to Fifth will be completed next month and the Second-to-Main curve in late October after the Reds’ season ends and while the Cincinnati Bengals are out of town.
