TO ALL OAKLEY RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES,
We hope that all of you are well and making the best of these unusual times. We encourage you and those close to you to take appropriate steps to protect yourselves as described by the state, local and federal guidelines which are changing rapidly. We’ve added links to our website under "Resources" (see below) in the Coronavirus section of our home page for some of that guidance.
We encourage everyone within the Oakley neighborhood to come together as the caring community which we are, and to look out for your neighbors who are at higher risk and may not be able to get out for groceries and medicines.
We encourage everyone to support our local Oakley businesses to the extent you feel comfortable.
Finally, we announced last week that the Oakley Community Council will not meet in person for either of the scheduled March 19 or April 7 meeting dates. We will instead hold online meetings with the board and including interested residents. More details of how to join those meetings will be coming soon.
If there are further updates, we will send those out as warranted.
Take care and be safe,
Your OCC Board of Trustees

Madison Road Street Closure - Tuesday July 14th
On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, Madison Rd will be completely closed to traffic between Brotherton Rd and Ridge Rd. The closure is currently scheduled to begin at 5:30 AM and extend until 8 PM.

Madison Road Traffic Impacts:
Two-Way vehicular roadway traffic along Madison Road will be maintained during most of the project.
Starting on Monday, April 13, 2020, the contractor will create partial lane closures that will limit through traffic on Madison to one lane in each direction. Madison Road will only be completely closed for several short periods of time as required by construction activity.
Project Detour Route - When Madison Road is completely closed, the assigned detour route for outbound Madison Road will be east on Brotherton Road, to north on Ridge Avenue, and returning to Madison Road. And the assigned detour route for inbound Madison Road will be south on Ridge Avenue, to west on Brotherton Road, and returning to Madison Road. Reference the attached Project Description Summary for the Project Madison Road Detour Route Map Diagram.
City Department of Transportation and Engineering (DOTE) will post updates on their twitter account (@RoadmapCincy) and we will post the latest schedule updates here, so check back frequently for the latest information.
Project Staff will provide construction updates via the following methods:
Due to existing health emergency work conditions, we are anticipating that Twitter @ Roadmap Cincy will contain the most up to date information.
Cincinnati Metro routes (11, 12x, 41, some school routes) will be impacted by these closures/detours, you can see all the Metro detours on their blog.
