Great Cincinnati Water Works Riverside Drive Construction

A section of Riverside Drive in the East End neighborhood will close for approximately three months beginning on Monday, June 17, 2024. The closure is necessary to complete installation of a new water supply transmission main and is the third and final phase of a project that began in September 2023.

The closure will begin west of Collins Avenue and move east toward Lumber Street. During this time, through and local vehicle traffic will not be permitted to pass the closure at any time including days, nights, and weekends. Traffic will be rerouted to approach the construction area from the opposite side.

Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained, and a detour will be posted for vehicular traffic passing through the area. Trucks will be permitted to use Columbia Parkway during this work.

The construction involves the removal and replacement of a 60-inch diameter transmission main, followed by a full-width repaving of Riverside Drive. It requires a 10-foot-wide by 25-foot-deep trench excavation of the road and large construction. The closure will help ensure the safety of workers, residents, and the public during this work. No interruptions to water service are expected.

If you have any questions, please contact Project Manager, Kyle Buckley at 513-746-5793

Stop Toxic PFAS Exposure: Don’t Let Them Turf Our Cincinnati Parks

For the past 10 years or so, the use of synthetic turf in Cincinnati has exploded. The problem is: synthetic turf contains dangerous chemicals, heats up to dangerous temperatures in the sun, and sheds plastics into our watershed and sewer system, likely raising water and sewer costs for all of us in the long term. Learn More.

If you live or work in the East End, let's make it a better community. The best way to do this is by getting involved with the association or a committee you feel drawn to. ​ ​Suppose there's a specific area you would like improved, like safety, traffic, trash, communication, the gardens, or social gathering. In that case, you can​ join a committee, create a​ committee and build a team to make it happen. The East End Area Council is looking for volunteers with various abilities and energy levels. There is only so much a few can do, but many can move mountains. Contact Us to Volunteer.
