Damage from the water main break

Over the weekend, a 60-inch water main broke along Riverside Drive in the East End, resulting in a temporary closure of the road.

According to the Cincinnati Police Department, the road will be closed between Delta and Collins avenues for a possible span of several weeks.

The City of Cincinnati posted about the main break on Jan. 2, stating that the issue occurred at 2471 Riverside Drive at Lumber and Bayou streets.

According to the CPD, "No trucks will be able to pass between Bains and Delta. Collins has a railroad bridge preventing trucks over 10' from passing," so plan your routes accordingly.
