City applies for $200K road grant for Sedamsville development

Cincinnati City Council on April 10 approved an application for a grant of up to $200,000 from the Ohio Development Services Agency to construct an access drive into the former Conrail transfer station site in Sedamsville, which could open the 22-acre parcel to further redevelopment.

The access drive, to be built between River Road and Southside Avenue, will become a new public street and will include new curbs and sidewalks, as well as infrastructure improvements such as sanitary sewers and water lines.

The new road will also serve Peter Cremer NA's new $3 million, 55,000-square-foot office and warehouse building, currently under construction.

If awarded the grant, the City will provide a $900,000 local match.
