CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Part of Fourth Street downtown originally set to reopen Saturday will remain closed into the beginning of this week, city officials said in a recent tweet.

The Cincinnati Department of Transportation said Fourth Street between Race and Elm streets will not reopen until Tuesday.

Fourth Street’s closure comes after a partial building collapse on Monday that resulted in the injuries of four construction workers and the death of a fifth.
