Cincinnati to enter LPA with ODOT on MLK project

Cincinnati City Council has passed unanimously an ordinance authorizing the City to enter into a local public agency (LPA) agreement with the Ohio Department of Transportation for the West Martin Luther King Jr. Improvements Project.

The $9.9 million project will address safety issues between W McMicken and Clifton Avenues by improving the S-curve, improving the W Martin Luther King Jr./Clifton intersection, and installing a dedicated bike lane.

The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments will provide $7.9 million for the project. Department of Transportation and Engineering capital improvement program project accounts will fund the balance of the cost.

Scheduled to begin in 2016, the project is currently in the conceptual design phase.
