Traffic along Cincinnati's riverfront is getting a little more tricky for a few weeks.
Lane closures and detours start Monday morning while crews work on constructing a new pedestrian bridge on Pete Rose Way and what's known as the Dumbo Lot at Third and Broadway and removing the Race Street bridge deck.
Sidewalks in those areas will also be closed for certain periods.
The traffic disruptions are slated to run through early August.
New research from the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center finds kids who live near or attend school near a major highway or interstate have an increased risk for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) because of the traffic- related pollution.
Lots of kids could be at risk
Studies have shown 40% of children attend school within 400 meters of a major highway. Another 11% of the population in the U.S. lives within a 100 meters of a four-lane highway.
"The Roebling Bridge will be closed beginning approximately at 4 pm until so that the District 6 Bridge Crew can take check the north tower. This afternoon a piece of sandstone fell from the ledge. At this time it appears to be superficial, but crews will take a closer look. The bridge will reopen once inspection is complete and deemed clear."
The Roebling Suspension bridge is out of commission for Thursday rush hour traffic.
