CINCINNATI – Third Street will be closed between Elm and Race tomorrow morning, Saturday, April 29, beginning at 7:00 a.m. In addition, Elm Street will be closed between Second and Fourth streets.
The closures are needed so crews may use a helicopter to air lift steel, decking and other roofing materials to the southwest corner of the lower roof on the 312 Elm Building.
Motorists on Third Street will be detoured south at Race Street, east on Second, north on Vine, west on Fourth, south on Plum and west again on Third. Motorists on Elm will be detoured east on Second, north on Vine, west on Fourth and north again on Elm.
Crews will stage equipment and materials on Third Street. It will take multiple trips for the helicopter to pick up and transport the materials. HGC Construction, the contractor managing the operation, expects deliveries to be complete by approximately 10:00 a.m., assuming favorable weather.
Law enforcement officers will be positioned on Third at Race and on Elm at Second to ensure that motorists and pedestrians do not travel into the area while the helicopter is in flight.
