In coordination with neighborhood redevelopment efforts, the Department of Transportation & Engineering (DOTE) converted William Howard Taft Road and East McMillan Street in Walnut Hills to two-way traffic in October of 2012. Due to the success of that project, East Walnut Hills residents and businesses asked that the City consider two-way operation on streets in their neighborhood as well.
The Northside Arterial Project aims to improve safety and capacity on Northside streets within the study area and to address traffic pattern changes related to the Interstate 74/Colerain Avenue interchange project.
This project will construct a 15-foot wide shared-use path at the top of the bank of the Ohio River between Collins Avenue and Corbin Street, except in areas where physical constraints and/or right-of-way availability prohibit construction.
The purpose of this project is to address roadway safety concerns along West Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (West MLK Drive) from near West McMicken Avenue to Clifton Avenue.
The Liberty Street Complete Street project will incorporate the "complete streets" transportation policy into the redesign of Liberty Street. This policy will balance the needs of all users so that the new roadway will allow safe, convenient and comfortable travel and access for pedestrians, bicyclists, Metro bus users, the Streetcar and the automobile.
Construction is under way on the Waldvogel Viaduct, which connects the Sixth Street Expressway to Elberon Avenue, Warsaw Avenue and River Road in the Lower Price Hill and Queensgate neighborhoods. The project will replace the existing, deteriorated, half-mile-long structure that has been rated in "Poor" condition for several years.
The Western HIlls Viaduct is reaching the end of its useful life. Based on the preliminary engineering performed to date, the design team is recommending replacing the viaduct with a new double deck structure on an alignment to the south of the existing viaduct.
Improvements to Red Bank Expressway from Columbia Parkway (US 50) to I-71 are being designed as part of the Eastern Corridor Program, in coordination with the Ohio Department of Transportation, Hamilton County and Clermont County. The Eastern Corridor Program is a regional effort that integrates roadway network improvements, new rail transit options, expanded bus service, bikeways and walking paths to improve travel and access between Greater Cincinnati’s eastern communities and its central employment, economic and social centers.
