Traffic along Cincinnati's riverfront is getting a little more tricky for a few weeks.
Lane closures and detours start Monday morning while crews work on constructing a new pedestrian bridge on Pete Rose Way and what's known as the Dumbo Lot at Third and Broadway and removing the Race Street bridge deck.
Sidewalks in those areas will also be closed for certain periods.
The traffic disruptions are slated to run through early August.
Jefferson Social will take up residence this Spring at The Banks. The neighborhood bar and restaurant style facility will serve Mexican street food. It will be operated by Tony Cafeo, who also owns Jefferson Hall at Newport on the Levee.
“Our focus will be on serving artisanal drinks with freshly squeezed juices and quality liquors, and serving tacos and nachos made with fresh ingredients,” says Cafeo. “Customers will be able to enjoy themselves in a design and layout conducive to socializing, eating, dancing and partying.”
Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches is coming to the Banks. A release from the development team of Carter and The Dawson Company says it will open in April on the south block of Freedom Way. “The addition of Jimmy John’s helps round out the ‘something for everyone’ atmosphere at The Banks,” said Scott Stringer, Executive Vice President at Carter. “It will be another great option for those who are downtown looking for lunch or something quick.”
