Mudslide closes one lane of Columbia Parkway

EAST WALNUT HILLS, OH (FOX19) - A small mudslide closed a westbound lane of Columbia Parkway Wednesday.

The right lane will remain shut down between William Howard Taft Road and Torrence Parkway until early Thursday, Cincinnati police said.

It was closed during the Wednesday morning commute so crews could begin cleanup.

A mudslide developed overnight as torrential rain fell. As of 10 a.m. Wednesday Crews had removed about five trucks loads of dirt from the scene.

If there's no more dirt movement, the lane will reopen ahead of the Thursday morning rush, city officials said.

Earlier this month, the city had to shut down a portion of Columbia Parkway while crews repaired a mudslide at William Howard Taft Road.
