CINCINNATI – Eastbound East Court Street between Walnut and Main will be closed tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 7, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. so crews can prepare the area for the installation of conduit to power the Cincinnati Streetcar.
Main Street will remain open but will have lane restrictions between Ninth and East Court streets. Motorists traveling on Walnut will be detoured east on Seventh Street and north on Main.
Pedestrian access on the south side of East Court will be maintained, as well as all crosswalks. On-street parking will be prohibited during the closure.
Detour signage will be posted.
Note: The same stretch of East Court Street will be closed from 6:00 p.m. Friday, Feb 13, to 6:00 a.m. Monday, Feb. 23, so crews can install the conduit, which protects the electric wiring between existing Duke Energy lines and the streetcar’s transaction power substation on Walnut and Court streets. More information will be provided in another news release next week.
Other streetcar work
All lanes of Race Street as well as Elder Street between Race and Goose Alley in Over-the-Rhine are scheduled to reopen Monday, Feb. 9. This stretch of Elder has been closed since Jan. 26 while crews installed spur track for the streetcar.
