Road closures in effect around casino construction site

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Road closures will be in effect beginning Tuesday around the construction site of the Horseshoe Casino.

Eggleston Avenue, between Central Avenue and East Court Street, will close to traffic for approximately four months.  Eggleston Avenue will be widened and reconfigured for two-way traffic and sidewalks on both sides of the street will be widened and improved.

The Hamilton County Sheriff Department's access to the Justice Center will be preserved.

East Court Street will remain closed from Eggleston Avenue to Reedy Street. East Court Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Reedy Street to Gilbert Avenue.

These improvements are expected to  enhance connectivity to Downtown, Over-the-Rhine and Pendleton, and improve vehicular traffic flow and pedestrian safety.
