Race Closes Some Downtown Streets Saturday


The Cincinnati Cyclones Frozen 5K and 10K take place Saturday at 9 a.m. and as a result, expect some streets near the Ohio River to be closed. 

The following streets will close at 8:30 a.m. and remain closed until about noon, with one exception: Mehring Way between Joe Nuxhall Way and Johnny Bench Way closes at 6 a.m. for staging.  

  • E. Pete Rose Way between Broadway and Johnny Bench Way 
  • E. Pete Rose Way eastbound between Broadway and Eggleston Avenue 
  • Riverside Drive eastbound between Eggleston Avenue and Bains Street 
  • Mehring Way between E. Pete Rose Way and W. Pete Rose Way 
  • W. Pete Rose Way eastbound between Mehring Way and Central Avenue 
  • Central Avenue between Third Street and Mehring Way 
  • Freedom Way between Elm Street and Joe Nuxhall Way 
  • Elm Street south of Second Street 
  • Race Street south of Second Street, though access to garage will be maintained 
  • Rosa Parks Street south of Second Street, with access to garage maintained 
  • Joe Nuxhall Way south of Second Street 
  • Ramp LL 
  • Johnny Bench Way 

Given the polar vortex temps Cincinnati has experienced recently, runners (and everyone, really) are perhaps thankful that the race won't be all that "frozen": Our partner WCPO reports Saturday will see a high of 48 degrees with a zero percent chance of precipitation.
