McMillan, Taft to convert to two-way streets

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

McMillan Street and William Howard Taft Road will soon see a change, as they move from one-way streets to two-way.

The change is taking place in the section between May Street and Victory Parkway.

McMillan Street is scheduled to be repainted and converted to two-way on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012, and Taft Road is scheduled to be repainted and converted to two-way on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012.

Work is planned to start at 7 a.m. and continue until the street change is completed. This work is weather-dependent - rain would delay the implementation by one week.

The new design will have two eastbound lanes on McMillan, one westbound lane, and one lane for parking on the north side. Taft will have two westbound lanes, one eastbound lane, and one lane for parking on the south side.

The Public Services Department has installed and covered new traffic signals on both streets. Other necessary signing will be installed over the next week.

During the conversion on the two Saturdays, one lane will be open for traffic. Motorists should expect stopped traffic and delays throughout the work site. Local access will be maintained.
