CINCINNATI – Lane restrictions will be in place on Freedom Way tomorrow, Wednesday, May 18, as crews paint new stripes on the stretch between Race and Rosa Parks streets. Through access will be allowed but motorists should expect intermittent delays while work is under way from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Flaggers will be on site to direct motorists.
The restriping marks a construction milestone for the new General Electric U.S. Global Operations Center and adjacent Radius at The Banks apartments. Construction on the apartments finished in March and work is due to finish on GE by early September.
The new striping will designate one through lane in each direction as well as left turn lanes at the intersections of Race on the western end of Freedom Way and at the intersection of Rosa Parks on the east.
Meanwhile, progress continues on the parking structure just south of Freedom Way and the new buildings. Crews will pour the surface layer of concrete tomorrow on the stub of Race Street now extending south into the parking structure. The pour will take place within the construction site starting at approximately 4:00 a.m.
This new access to Race Street is expected to open by Sept. 1.
Construction schedules can change due to weather or unforeseen field conditions. For the latest information on construction affecting streets and sidewalks, check RoadmapCincy:
