2 westbound Columbia Parkway lanes blocked Wednesday

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Work crews will block two westbound lanes on  Columbia Parkway starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

They are expected to remove dirt to try to avoid having another mudslide.

The crews will shift traffic onto the eastbound side of Columbia Parkway between William Howard Taft Road to Kemper Lane.

Expect delays in both directions.

Crews are hoping to have it cleaned up and re-opened by the afternoon.

"The threat of a mudslide is an ongoing concern in this part of the country and they're something we monitor for year-round," said City Manager Harry Black.

"We will proceed with caution and take steps to keep this area and all of our roadways safe for motorists."
