CINCINNATI – Joe Nuxhall Way will be closed between Freedom Way and Mehring Way 24/7 beginning at 9:00 a.m. Monday, May 23, through 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, and again Friday, May 27, so crews may pour and finish concrete for the roof deck of the AC Marriott Hotel.
Motorists who wish to travel south on Joe Nuxhall Way will be detoured east at Second Street, south on Broadway/Johnny Bench Way, west on Mehring Way to Elm Street to Freedom Way. Motorists who wish to head north on Joe Nuxhall Way will be detoured via Mehring Way as well.
No through traffic will be allowed on this stretch of Joe Nuxhall Way during the closure. Parking access to the Central Riverfront Garage will be maintained via Mehring Way and Walnut/Marian Spencer Way.
In addition, the west sidewalk in this same stretch of Joe Nuxhall Way will be closed while crews are working overhead.
Pedestrians will be detoured to the east sidewalk immediately adjacent to Great American Ball Park, then south to Mehring Way. The west sidewalk will reopen every evening after crews finish overhead work. The portion of sidewalk in front of the building site along Freedom Way will remain open via covered scaffolding.
Access to the Moerlein Lager House remains open while all work is under way.
Detour signage for motorists and pedestrians will be posted.
Exterior work on the seven-story AC Marriott is expected to wrap up in spring 2017.
