KENNEDY AVE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
Kennedy Ave Bridge, old and failingBeginning in mid-April (but after our beloved Sap Run) the Kennedy Avenue Bridge will be closed in order to be completely replaced.  The bridge is inspected annually and while it is currently safe for all legal vehicles, the bridge is in poor condition. The deterioration has advanced to the point where rehabilitation is not feasible, necessitating replacement.

The road will be closed from mid-April until mid-November, with final completion by the end of 2020. Detours will be clearly marked but will cut through a few dense residential zones. Please be aware of speed limits and respectful of neighbors and pedestrians through this time of transition.

Kennedy Park will remain open throughout the project (preserving Play in the Park!), though some driveway reconstruction and repaving will be needed.

The official website for the project can be found at https://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/dote/dote-projects/kennedy-avenue-bridge-replacement/

In 2019, the difficult decision was made to cancel the long-standing tradition of the Kennedy Heights Progressive Dinner. The decision was not made lightly, but was naturally met with great disappointment from many neighbors. An ad hoc committee of six met to discuss its future. They have several ideas of how to "relaunch" the event in Fall 2020, but they need neighborhood participation. If you are interested in carrying on this well-loved tradition, please reach out to Steven Greiser at slgrieser@gmail.com
