CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A water main installation project on the eastside of Cincinnati will have a major street reduced to one lane.
Madison Road will be reduced to one lane between Ridge Road and Ibsen Avenue beginning Wednesday, July 18.
According to the Cincinnati Transportation and Engineering department, that lane only will be open to westbound traffic. Eastbound traffic will detour around the construction. The restrictions are due to Greater Cincinnati Water Works’ (GCWW) installation of two new water mains underneath Madison Road.
The lane restrictions and detour are expected to last about one month. Recognizing the amount of construction on Madison the past several years, the city and its contractors have created a plan to expedite this part of the construction project. Contractors will be working longer hours and seven days a week to meet this schedule.
