CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Columbia Parkway will experience lane closures in two separate locations beginning Monday.

According to the Cincinnati Department of Transportation and Engineering, westbound lanes of Columbia Parkway between Delta Avenue and Torrence Parkway will reduce from three lanes to one for a hillside stabilization project.

The closure begins Monday and is expected to last two to three months.

Additionally, the westbound curb lane between Tusculum and Beechmont avenues will be closed daily from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. for six to eight weeks.

The closure will allow crews access to the work site above the retaining wall to reconstruct stormwater inlets. The goal is to eliminate long-term flooding in that section of the parkway, which is characterized by a sharp elbow curve.

The projects come after Mayor John Cranley introduced a $17 million project to fix the parkway’s landslide damage problems in March.
