Project Information:

The Innovation Way Extension project consists of extending the roadway from the newly-built roundabout at Socialville-Fosters Road to Duke Boulevard, with a five lane section, including the construction of an additional double-lane roundabout at the new intersection with Duke Boulevard.

The new roadway will include curb and gutter improvements, storm sewers, a 10’ multiuse path and center medians.

Also as part of this project work, Duke Boulevard will be widened to five lanes from Irwin-Simpson Road to Innovation Way.

Project Benefits:

Local improvements to Innovation Way are a critical component of ensuring safe and efficient access to this growing hub of economic activity in southwest Warren County. Currently, Innovation Way is a three-lane road between Western Row Road and Socialville-Fosters Road. The proposed extension of Innovation Way south through the property known as Kingswood will support two important economic development outcomes. First, this extension will provide an immediate benefit to the P&G Mason Business Center by providing improved access to a second interchange for their 1,950 existing and 1,350 new employess. Second, the road will provide infrastructure improvements to support continued investment in our area.

The extension of Innovation Way and the widening of Duke Boulevard, along with the new roundabouts, will help keep traffic moving rather than adding signalized intersections to this area – all of which is vital to the continued economic growth and job creation in this region.

Access to businesses along Duke Boulevard will be modified to allow Duke Boulevard to remain accessible and safe to local businesses.

Roundabouts have been recognized for significantly improving safety at high traffic locations because they eliminate the use of traditional traffic signals which allows traffic to move continuously through a given area. Potential conflict points are also eliminated and because traffic is moving at slower speeds, the number and severity of crashes are reduced.
