The Banks team to hold contractor open house

The Banks Public Partnership is holding an information session for construction contractors interested in working on the project tomorrow evening from 5 P.M. to 7 P.M. at the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency, 1740 Langdon Farm Road in Bond Hill.

The partnership will provide a construction update, detail upcoming bid packages, and discuss the process by which contractors can become certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE).

Part two of the next bid package, Bid Package #12, will be out for bid later this fall. Continuing the infrastructure improvements, elements will include a John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge pedestrian connector, extension of the river walk along Mehring Way, and a pedestrian bridge at Broadway and E Pete Rose Way.

Part one of the package, currently in the design phase and scheduled for bidding next spring, will include the reconstruction of Freedom Way and the removal of Race Street south of Freedom Way, Second Street pedestrian improvements, and security cameras.
