New road opens Tuesday at Banks Project

Riverfront development continues to make progress with Tuesday's official ceremony opening East Freedom Way.

This stretch between Walnut and Joe Nuxhall Way will connect everything between the Freedom Center and Great American Ball Park, including the heart of the Banks project.

The Holy Grail, current apartments and all the future business and entertainment tenants that are set to join the Banks now have direct access along the riverfront.

Mayor Mark Mallory will unveil the new street sign at 1 p.m., officially dedicating the roadway.

The other half, West Freedom Way, will open in October.  Once that portion is open, Freedom Way will allow traffic to flow freely from Paul Brown Stadium to Great American Ball Park.
