Public information meeting scheduled for Madisonville’s

Duck Creek Connector project

Hamilton County (Thursday, July 16, 2015) –  The Ohio Department of Transportation and the City of Cincinnati will host a public information meeting next week to provide an update on the proposed Duck Creek Connector project in Madisonville.

The Duck Creek Connector project, developed in close coordination with local community, business and school representatives and other area stakeholders, is a component of the Red Bank Corridor improvement plan that will be implemented in a phased approach as part of the Eastern Corridor Program of projects.​ 

The public information meeting will be conducted in an open house style format and is scheduled:

 

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

 5 to 7 p.m.

Madisonville Recreation Center – Gymnasium

5320 Stewart Ave.

Cincinnati, OH 45227

Community members may arrive at any point during the meeting, review project information and talk with the project team. Project representatives will share brief remarks about the project with those in attendance at 5:30 p.m., and once again at 6:30 p.m.

The public is invited to submit written comments to the project team at the meeting and during the public comment period, which will remain open through Tuesday, Aug. 4.  Comment forms will be provided at the meeting and made available online after the meeting concludes. All meeting materials will be posted on the Red Bank Corridor Public Involvement page of the Eastern Corridor website immediately following the meeting (http://easterncorridor.org/projects/red-bank/red-bank-involvement/).​ 

The purpose of the Duck Creek Connector project is to:

·                Improve access, mobility and safety in the Red Bank Expressway/Madison Road area by reducing existing and projected congestion and delays along Red Bank Expressway and its intersections with Madison Road and Duck Creek Road;

·                Provide a connection between existing and planned development along Medpace Way, Duck Creek Road and Red Bank Expressway;

·                Improve pedestrian and bike access and safety on the local road; and

·                Enhance Madison Road and Red Bank Expressway as a neighborhood gateway to Madisonville.

 

The Duck Creek Connector is being developed as a design/build project, which means initial design work will be approved and then construction on those initial phases of the project can begin even while future design work is being completed. One firm will be responsible for both designing and building the roadway.

 

This method of project management significantly shortens the time required to complete construction projects. Detailed plans for the Connector will be developed in early 2016; construction will begin in the spring and the project will be completed by late fall.

The Duck Creek connector is an element of the Red Bank Corridor improvement plan, which will create a balance of mobility and access to better serve local communities, businesses and neighborhoods, while at the same time, improving travel along this important community connector.

 The Red Bank Corridor improvements are a core piece of the Eastern Corridor Program. The Eastern Corridor is a program of integrated, multi-modal transportation investments designed to improve mobility, ease congestion, increase access and support economic development between downtown Cincinnati and eastern Clermont County. More information is available atwww.EasternCorridor.org.​
