Cincinnati unveils its plan to reimagine Central Parkway

The planned Central Parkway overhaul will reduce the road to one or two lanes of traffic, plant a tree canopy and add a pedestrian plaza adjacent to TQL Stadium, according to new images released by the city of Cincinnati on Thursday.

“This concept reflects what the community has shared with us over the last few months – a much greener, safer and pedestrian-friendly corridor that helps to reestablish the original vision for Central Parkway,” Jeff Stine, the city’s project manager, said in a news release Oct. 26.

The city also will install new lighting and traffic signals. The city will take additional feedback through Nov. 26 and create a final version of the project by the end of 2023 or early 2024.

A group of citizens and business owners want to revive the vision of Cincinnati having its own version of Paris’ Avenue des Champs-Elysees or Boston’s Commonwealth Avenue, making it an attractive pedestrian-centered mecca primed for development.
