WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE: BENGALS AGREE TO NEW STADIUM SITE
Published February 14, 1997
The Bengals have agreed to a location for their new stadium between Elm St. and Central Ave., immediately north of Mehring Way. The facility will include a new Bengals front office and a new practice facility. The stadium is to open with the 2000 NFL season (Bengals). Hamilton County will now try to "relocate eight companies on the site," according to Anne Michaud of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER. Land acquisition may take six to nine months, and county officials "expect construction to begin" in early '98. The county and the Bengals are working toward a June 30 deadline to sign a lease (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 2/14).
