Traffic news: detour and lane closures this week

(August 25, 2020 - Blue Ash) 

Motorists in Blue Ash should be on the lookout for a detour and some lane closures as construction crews work on projects this week.

Starting tomorrow (8/26) from  8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., the right turn lane of northbound Reed Hartman will be closed at Glendale-Milford Road for ADA ramp installation. A short detour will be posted which will take motorists to Creek Road and Kenwood Road, to avoid the construction. (See the detour map here). This work will wrap up in two to three days.

On Thursday (8/27) and Friday (8/28) between 7:30 p.m. – 6:00 a.m., Reed Hartman Highway north of Cornell Road will be down to one lane northbound and southbound.  Two officers will be on hand at Cornell Road to help maintain traffic flow.  Crews will be installing a gas tie-in at the site of the future Chick-fil-A. Crews are expected to begin pavement restoration in the area during the week of August 31.  

All work is weather permitting and subject to change.
