Innovation Way Widening

Under Construction

Construction Timing:

Spring 2017 through Winter 2017

Project Information:

Innovation Way will be widened to two lanes in each direction from Socialville-Fosters Road to Western Row Road, with a center turning lane to support safe access to local businesses, and aesthetic medians, consistent with local landscaping and design.

Project Benefits:

A growing number of bioscience and industry-leading employers and their employees call this area home, and accordingly, the infrastructure in and through this area must keep pace with business growth.

New southbound on and off ramps at Western Row will tie into Innovation Way, and new signalized intersections will be created. This will change the flow of traffic on Innovation Way, therefore the road will be widened to accommodate this anticipated change in traffic, and help traffic move more smoothly in and out of this important hub of economic activity in southwest Warren County.

This project is a key component of the overall Western Row Road Interchange Improvements. There are two key factors in making infrastructure improvements at a highway interchange – there are the interchange improvements themselves, and there are also the supporting improvements to the surrounding local streets. Doing one without the other could exacerbate existing safety and capacity problems even further.

Traffic Impacts:

Innovation Way will remain open and access to local businesses will be maintained through construction, although periodic lane closures may be needed during construction.
