CINCINNATI (AP) After more than a decade of discussion and planning, groundbreaking day finally arrived for a project meant to revive Cincinnati’s riverfront April 2.

Gov. Ted Strickland joined county and city leaders and developers in formally kicking off construction on the project known as The Banks.

When it’s done, there will be new condos, restaurants, shops and a park along the waterfront downtown.

In the first phase, parking garages will be built between the Reds’ Great American Ball Park and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

The garages will form the platform that will raise the rest of the project out of the Ohio River flood plain.
