This project is being undertaken by the City of Cincinnati in conjunction with ODOT’s I-71 Uptown Interchange project. The City will widen and reconstruct West Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (West MLK Drive) from near West McMicken Avenue to Clifton Avenue. There will be numerous landowner displacements as a result of these imrpovements. As of July 2013 the right-of-way acquisition process is underway. The schedule for construction has been moved back previously, but the project could see construction begin as early as late 2013. However, construction beginning in 2014 is a much more realistic expectation.
