Owners maintain normal hours of operation during demolition

CINCINNATI (October 6, 2016) – Construction crews continue to bring down Pogue’s Garage on Fourth Street between Race and Elm streets in downtown Cincinnati, but retail shops, restaurants, and hotels in the area remain open for business.

This complex demolition project requires periodic street and lane closures on Fourth, Elm and Race streets so crews may safely dismantle the structure and remove debris. The process will continue throughout the fall and winter. Road closure information can be accessed at
While the work is ongoing, Cincinnati residents and visitors are encouraged to continue supporting nearby businesses. Protective scaffolding has been erected on the south side of Fourth Street to allow safe pedestrian access.
