A Note About Pedestrian Access in the Town Center Garage

We have been working closely with the management of Music Hall and the City of Cincinnati on pedestrian access from the west (Central Parkway) side of the building in the absence of the pedestrian bridge over Central Parkway.

Light signal timing will be adjusted during special events to accommodate greater foot traffic across Central Parkway, and Cincinnati Police personnel will be present to help manage pedestrian flow.
Additional Cincinnati Police personnel will be dedicated throughout the Grand Opening period through NOV 2017, and beyond as required.
The City of Cincinnati, which operates the Town Center Garage, via a third-party management firm (All Pro Parking), has committed to enhanced guest service within the garage, including providing increased staffing upon exit to help ensure a quicker dismissal of cars, and ensuring de-icing and snow removal on sidewalks and ramps during inclement weather.
The City of Cincinnati has committed to refreshing street striping at Central Parkway and 14th, Central Parkway and Ezzard Charles, and Central Parkway and 12th to help ensure clear delineation of the pedestrian crosswalks surrounding Music Hall.
The City of Cincinnati will be coordinating and soliciting feedback from the Cincinnati Police on any adjustments needed throughout the Grand Opening series of events.

For your safety, the recommended pedestrian path from the west side of the building across Central Parkway is as follows [see map]:

Cross Central Parkway at the crosswalk at Ezzard Charles Dr.
Walk north to 14th St., where you will find increased lighting and security presence, or south to Grant Street, where you will find increased security presence.
Walk one block east to Elm St. to the front of Music Hall. If you need to visit the Box Office, please note that this is now located at the south end of the building, at street level, closest to Grant St.

Handicapped spaces are located in the Town Center Garage (see Courtesy Shuttle, above), Washington Park Garage, and (as available) in the Music Hall surface lot.
