Downtown Cincinnati is full of flashing construction arrow signs and traffic cones blocking streets...causing delays for workers and visitors.
City spokeswoman Meg Olberding said it is part of a "growth explosion."
“In my time at the city, I don’t remember quite this much construction happening in a concentrated area of the CBD, The banks and Over-the-Rhine,” Olberding said. “Obviously you do one thing one place, and it has a ripple effect.”
There are various projects including streetcar construction, Duke Energy utility work and private developments.

A month later, you can still see oil ringing trees like high-water marks.
Great Parks of Hamilton County spokeswoman Jennifer Sivak says, "you can still smell the oil."
