I wish the campus would build a tunnel between the medical campus and the main campus and promote walking and/or biking between them. It seems ridiculous that people take those shuttle simply because it's an impossible intersection to cross. If people are walking between them the space would really get activated.
So with Clifton Hills closed to through traffic, is it possible to cut through Cincinnati State's campus from CP over to Ludlow? In looking at Google Maps aerials, I don't see any gates that would prohibit cutting through their campus.
While I understand the resident's concerns, maybe they should have waited until the new I-75/MLK/Central Parkway/Hopple intersection is completed, then cars would have not reason to use this cut through. But now traffic is such a cluster, all through streets should serve as emergency relief.
The Clifton Market seems to be doing pretty well in fundraising to purchase the old IGA and open a co-op. Shares are $200. If you have extra money lying around you can also choose to provide a loan to the market of $1,000 or more.So far they have 696 shareholders and they have raised about 1/3 of the money needed to proceed.

But now traffic is such a cluster, all through streets should serve as emergency relief.Did you know that this intersection cannot be completed on the original timeline set by ODOT? It is now in delay because Cinci State asked for the I-74 exit to Central Pkwy to remain open. City pushed for this to support Cinci State. ODOT has now added at least 3-4 more years to the project while City and Cinci State figure out a new connector road project. This delay is preventing the new ramp from Hopple intersection to I-75 north from being installed. Further, the protected bikeway on Central Pkwy cannot be extended all the way to Ludlow because of all these delays.The residents were willing to wait until the original schedule, but the extra years ODOT now indicates was too much for residents to handle. New traffic studies indicate Clifton Hills Ave was carrying several thousand cars per day. Most of them during early morning rush and second big spike at evening rush. It's a real mess. Primary concerns are safety for all the kids walking from Ludlow to Cristo Del Ray school. There are no sidewalks and way too many cars.
