Phase one construction progress for week of August 12

Posted on

If you look around most places in the center city you’ll see construction work taking place. In many instances it is private real estate development, but there are also a number of public works projects, including our very own modern streetcar system.

The big news out this week was that new project executive John Deatrick believes the Over-the-Rhine portion of phase one could be operational as early as 2015. It is still expected that the full phase one route won’t become operational until September 2016, but this is encouraging news nevertheless.

In the meantime, here’s another project update from city officials on the status of phase one construction work for the Cincinnati Streetcar:

Utilities were hooked up at the construction trailer on the maintenance facility site (corner of Race and Henry).

There have been several news reports on the construction team’s progress as Messer/Prus/Delta and John Deatrick, project executive, have come aboard. The construction team is looking for all opportunities to be the most efficient in staging the work.
