More parking relief on the way

        Hoping to offset spaces that will be lost to the demolition of Cinergy Field, city and county officials say new parking will arrive soon.

        Among the spots coming:

        • About 75 spaces now under construction at the southeast corner of Fourth and Central Streets will open soon.

        • Another 250 spaces are expected to open in the next six months at a lot under construction at Eggleston Avenue, just under the bridge that connects downtown to Columbia Parkway.

        • 245 spaces are expected to open between Plum Street and Central Avenue, just under Fort Washington Way.

        • About 450 spaces, which are mostly built, are being planned at the new Reds ballpark south of Second Street between Main Street and Broadway. They are scheduled to open next April.

        • 400 spaces will available a year from now at a new city parking garage at the southwest corner of Seventh Street and Broadway. Construction begins soon.

        • Another 700 spaces are expected to debut in two phases next year at the new parking garage at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center on Second Street between Vine and Walnut streets.
