Cincinnati's Government Square will be closed for construction from Friday, July 17 - Friday, July 24. The square is Metro's main downtown transit hub. The bus company says more than 15,000 people transition through the hub each work day.

A spokesperson says streetcar work on Main Street is prompting the closure. Buses are being diverted because they will be unable to make the wide turn needed during the construction.

Main Street between Fifth and Sixth streets will be closed to all traffic from 6:00 a.m. Sunday, July 19, through 4:00 p.m. Friday, July 24 as crews install the tracks.
