(Cincinnati) The intersection of 12th and Race is closed for streetcar construction.

Crews will be working to install a special section of criss-cross track, allowing for track switches at the intersection. Project coordinators say it's a key part of the track installation.

Southbound traffic on Race will be detoured to Vine and 12th Street can use Central Parkway as an alternate route. The intersection is expected to be closed for the next six weeks.
