$114 million spent to recover Cincinnati from landslide

 Friday, September 2, 2022 


One of the worst landslides occurred in Cincinnati. The city has already paid something near $114 million to restore the city.

The area is one of the four worst landslide hazard areas. The city is downhill from there for the ‘City of Seven Hills’.

The city has paid more than their capacity to rebuild backyards, roads, public buildings and shops.

Ben Madsen of Miami Township near Milford has paid about $50000 for retaining the wall to stabilize his backyard. The backyard still needs a second wall that requires $100000.

Another citizen Becky Economou initially kept about $15000 as a budget to retain walls in her backyard but some other estimations have stated that it might not happen in that budget as well.

The landslides have caused the citizens to control damage and work on retaining the walls since 1989. The unique landscape and the beautiful scenes have always captured the attention of the tourists. However, the citizens warn the passengers that travelling to Cincinnati might not be a good decision at all.

Russo, executive director of the non-profit Hillside trust has pointed out that beautifully wooded hillsides with wonderful backdrops and incredibly dramatic overlooks have sweeping views of the Ohio River and Northern Kentucky.

$48 million I-471 interchange with U.S 50 on the western edge of Mount Adam has suffered the most. Even if people do decide to go to Cincinnati they have decided if they want to go alone or with someone else. The entire statistics for costs will be difficult for a single person.
