Portion of Freedom Way closing for construction work
Road construction on the Cincinnati riverfront will close eastbound Freedom Way from Rosa Parks Street to Elm Street starting Wednesday morning and continuing through July 24th. Traffic in the westbound direction will not be affected.
A press release said the partial closure will allow work crews to remove and replace the existing sidewalk and pavement at Freedom Way and Race Street. The project includes modifying expansion joints and installing a permanent railing.
A detour will be in place to route drivers north to Second Street to either Race Street to enter the Cincinnati Riverfront Garage, or to Rosa Parks Street. Pedestrian access will be maintained during the construction work.
