Residents in the Oakley neighborhood live just a short distance from nearby retail areas, but a railroad yard keeps them from walking there. The proposed Oakley Pedestrian Tunnel would solve that problem. The planned tunnel would run under a nearby railroad yard, cutting the commute time between the two areas.

Residents of Hyde Park and Oakley can learn more about a bridge closure that will impact their communities during a public information session Monday evening.  

Cincinnati officials say the bridge on Marburg Avenue at the intersections of Wasson Way and Greenhouse Lane is old and needs to be replaced.  

It's been a staple in Oakley for 75 years, and on August 26, the 20th Century Theater is going to celebrate.

Cincinnati Council will likely vote Wednesday on a plan to block three streets in the Oakley neighborhood as it deals with increasing traffic problems from the Rookwood Exchange development in Norwood.  

The plan would affect Hyde Park, Atlantic and Arbor Avenues if the city's fire department doesn't object to the closures.  

Resident Craig Rozen supports the action.
