MSD Finishing Up Construction Work, New Project to Start This Summer

The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) is finishing up construction work on two of its Lick Run storm sewer projects on Queen City Avenue and Harrison/Westwood avenues near the viaduct.

The next Lick Run project – storm sewers on Sunset Avenue, Rapid Run Pike, Guerley Road and Sunset Lane – is scheduled to start this summer.

Queen City Avenue Phase 1 Project

MSD’s Queen City Avenue project (between the Bypass and Sunset) should be complete by June, pending weather and the contractor’s schedule.

However, traffic on eastbound (inbound) Queen City Avenue will still experience temporary lane closures in this area for several more months. Duke Energy will be installing a new gas main between Sunset and Wyoming avenues during the months of May/June. Following that work, the Cincinnati Department of Transportation and Engineering (CDOTE) will repave the eastbound (inbound) lanes between Sunset and Wyoming.

Harrison Avenue Phase B Project

MSD’s Harrison Avenue Phase B project (Harrison, Westwood and Moellering avenues in vicinity of Western Hills Viaduct) should be complete by June, pending weather and the contractor’s schedule.


Historic Photos of South Fairmount

We came across some of these photos on the Cincinnati Traction History website. There are several more in the Fairmount and Westwood collection in addition to historic photographs of other parts of the city.
