Local Oakley Business Availability



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

Eastern Gateway Construction Schedule

The construction work on the Eastern Gateway project will be starting in March 2020, and because this project involves complete replacement on the eastern pedestrian bridge across Madison Road, there will be lane and street closures, and detours at times. The work is expected to take 4-5 months to complete.

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.

Lane/Street Closures and Detours

  • Oakley Pub Crawl - 26 April: Pedestrian access will be maintained between MadTree and the Business District. 

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

Detailed information about the project design can be found here.
