Update #2: Construction has started:

Paxton Ave Rehab, Intersection Improvements Update (Joe Conway, DOTE Project Engineer):

Construction progress is moving ahead as scheduled. Concrete work on curbs has begun and will continue over the next few weeks, and sidewalk construction will begin soon too. Asphalt work is expected to begin in June. The lane closure on Paxton (by the sliplane) is expected to remain for the next few weeks. This is partially due to the installation of a new wooden Duke Energy pole – since the roadway width is being reduced in that area, the location of that pole is in the existing roadway. It was necessary to get that pole installed as soon as possible because it takes time for the other utility providers with lines on that pole to get their lines moved over to the new pole, and they all have to go one at a time, and there are lots of lines on those poles! It’s a priority for us to have our contractor keep that lane closed for the shortest time possible.

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.
