Back-to-school traffic news: expect delays near Sycamore High School
If you travel by Sycamore High School, expect heavy traffic and delays.

Unless you are a student or parent doing drop-off or pick-up, it is best to find an alternate route when school starts on Monday, August 29.

The Cornell Road bridge construction is expected to cause long delays, especially during school arrival at 7:20 a.m. and dismissal at 2:10 p.m.

Sycamore High School students or parents dropping off students are encouraged to approach the school from the Blue Ash side in order to avoid the bridge.

The construction is expected to wrap up in mid-to-late September.

Thank you for your patience and drive safely in the work zone.
Police Department Open House set for 9/14
The Blue Ash Police Department Open House on September 14 will have some new fun things to do!

Guests will get a chance to dunk Police Chief Scott Noel and Lt. Rob Gerhardt in a dunking booth for a donation to the Blue Ash Police Association.

Kona Ice will also be on hand offering some sweet treats.

The Open House will take place from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Police Department, 4343 Cooper Road.

The first hour will be sensory-friendly, which means smaller crowds, no loud sirens, and no flashing lights. Read more.
