The city of Cincinnati will detour traffic on 14th Street for five days in order to accommodate sewer renewal repairs in the area and continue work on the city's streetcar project.

Traffic on that street will be detoured at Race Street beginning Tuesday, Feb. 11. Vehicles will be able to turn right onto Race Street from 14th Street, which is one-way and runs eastbound at that location.

City officials stated in a release that the work is expected to take five days to complete but the schedule is weather-permitting. The release also indicated the road will be re-opened during non-work hours and days.

The detour will be clearly posted and local access to nearby businesses and residences will be maintained, according to the release.

Motorists and bicyclists are asked to slow down and use caution when approaching the work area.

Construction of the 3.6-mile track for the Streetcar Car Project is coordinated by a joint effort between the city of Cincinnati and utility companies, Metro and other partners in order to minimize disruptions to residents, businesses and workers along the route.
