Downtown Road Projects Begin Wednesday, May 7


Evening construction wraps up two major downtown improvements

The City of Cincinnati will begin two downtown road construction projects on Wednesday, May 7. One project will
affect Vine Street between Fifth and Sixth Streets. The other project is on Fifth Street from just west of Walnut Street
to just east of Main Street. Both projects will occur simultaneously.

The projects are the final pieces of two recent downtown improvements. The construction on Vine Street will replace
the surface adjacent to Fountain Square. The project on Fifth Street is the final phase of the Government Square
development.

Both projects will include grinding and removing the current surface, followed by adding a new paved surface. All
work on these projects will be done in the evenings, beginning at 6 p.m. Work is scheduled to take place May
7, May 9 and May 19-22. All work on these two projects is expected to be complete by May 22.

Traffic access will be maintained on both Vine and Fifth Streets during all construction. Although no detours
will be required, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes.
