Cincinnati police are erecting temporary barricades on portions of McMicken Street to keep people from cruising for prostitutes in a part of the city where sex trafficking has been rampant.

In order to combat increasing prostitution offenses on McMicken Street from Over-the-Rhine through the Clifton Heights and University Heights area, the Cincinnati police department began erecting temporary barricades on the street today to curb the cruising for prostitutes there.

Work continues on the USquare Development near the University of Cincinnati.  

The project includes a public plaza, and some council members and nearby residents aren’t impressed with its design.

During a meeting Tuesday, Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls said she was choosing her words carefully.
