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;
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.
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.
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
