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
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
