Qualls establishes new subcommittee on ‘Major Transportation & Infrastructure Projects’

Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls has established a new Subcommittee on Major Transportation & Infrastructure Projects as the chair of City Council’s Livable Communities Committee. The new subcommittee will meet monthly at 10:30am in Committee Room B at Cincinnati City Hall (map) to discuss and oversee “additional major transportation projects” in addition to transportation and infrastructure work.

The first meeting of this subcommittee takes place today and will give an overview of major projects like the Cincinnati Streetcar, 3-C High-Speed Rail Corridor, Hopple Street-MLK-Madison Road Corridor, Eastern Corridor, and the I-71/MLK Interchange in addition to Interstate 75 work that the Livable Communities Committee has been overseeing for some time.

Those interested in attending future meetings can mark their calendars for the future monthly meeting dates: February 2, March 2 (at 10am), March 30, April 27, May 25, and June 22. City Hall is well-served by Queen City Metro routes 1, 6, 10, 32, 33, 40X, 49, and 50. To see which route is most convenient for you, and to plan your trip now, use Metro’s Trip Planner.
