Central Parkway

By
Real Estate Agent with Star One Realtors

Many Cincinnati residents making their daily commute on Central Parkway have no idea they are actually driving on top of the failed Cincinnati Subway project.

The project was started at the conclusion of WWI in 1920. However, work stop abruptly in 1927 with seven miles of undergound tunnel completed but with no track installed.  There are three semi-completed stations located at Central Parkway and Race streets, at Central Parkway and Liberty street, and at Central Parkway and Brighton corner.

There has been many attempts to revive the project over the years with no success. The only group authorized to offer tours is the Cincinnati Museum Center's Heritage Project because of their safety record while conducting tours. However, the tours are offered sporadically and only one or two are planned annually.

While traveling on I-75 south, carefully look to your left near the Hopple Street exit, you can catch a quick look at the north and south entrance and exit of the failed subway project.

As always, I'm here for all your real estate needs!
