Update #1: Construction has started:

Paxton Ave Rehab, Intersection Improvements Under Way

Mar 20, 2023

CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Department of Transportation & Engineering (DOTE) has begun a street rehabilitation and intersection improvement project on Paxton Avenue between Wasson Road and Marburg Avenue in Hyde Park.

As part of the project, crews will eliminate the slip lane and install new traffic signals at Wasson Road to help improve pedestrian and vehicular safety at this busy intersection.

In addition to curb repairs, curb ramps will be replaced or upgraded to meet accessibility standards required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Crews have begun making repairs to a damaged water main and are scheduled to begin full-depth pavement repairs next. 

Through traffic will be allowed during the eight-month project, though motorists should expect brief, intermittent delays, depending on the work being performed. The project is scheduled for completion in November. 

The city will post updates on these sites, so check them on a regular basis:

rus Construction:

Paxton/Isabella/Wasson Street Rehab Overview

Starting this March, and continuing through to this fall, the Paxton/Isabella/Wasson intersection will be undergoing construction as part of a re-design of the intersection. Paxton, from Wasson to Marburg will also undergo street rehabilitation. 

This construction will result in lane closures and delays when traveling through this area, so we will post the schedule and any updates as they become available.

The type of work varies based on the condition of each street but generally includes:

  • Grinding and paving
  • Replacing curbs and curb ramps
  • Repairing driveway aprons and sidewalks, as required
  • Adjusting utility castings to grade
  • Final surface coat of new pavement
  • Line striping

Typical work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Crews may work later into the evening and on Saturdays, if needed.

Rehab work takes about two months to complete per street. On most streets, at least two lanes will remain open to through traffic during repairs. Local access to residences and businesses will be available at all times.

All roads will be reopened to through traffic during non-work hours.

On-street parking may be prohibited, as needed, to accommodate crews. Signs will be posted in advance to allow motorists time to find alternate parking options. In most cases, these temporary restrictions will be in place for less than 24 hours and a street will be reopened by 6:00 p.m. Violators will be towed per city ordinance.
