Project Information

This page compiles important documents, construction photos, news articles, and media events. 

The Newtown Pike Extension project presented many challenges to all partners involved, from environmental coordination to historic properties that required archaeological investigation. Issues addressed were:

  • Impacts on a blue line stream – Town Branch
  • A protected park
  • Impact to a historic property, the Cincinnati Southern Railway’s Queen & Crescent Freight Station
  • Hazardous Materials
  • Impacts on a low-income minority neighborhood – including noise pollution created by proximity to a train yard
