Expect temporary lane closures today, tomorrow and Monday on Madison Road and Red Bank Expressway as crews activate new traffic signals

The Duck Creek Connector, a new road that provides a direct connection between Duck Creek Road and Madison Road at Medpace Way in Madisonville, is scheduled to open to traffic this coming Monday, Dec. 11. A component of Eastern Corridor Segment I, Red Bank Corridor Improvements, the Duck Creek Connector continues the momentum of completed projects that are improving connectivity and supporting economic development and job creation between downtown Cincinnati and Clermont County.

Beginning today, Dec. 7, new traffic signals located at access points to and from the Duck Creek Connector will be activated in stages prior to the opening of the new roadway on Monday. This process will require various lane closures on Madison Road near the new intersection with Medpace Way between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. today and tomorrow. On Monday, temporary lane closures will be in place on Red Bank Expressway north of the intersection with Madison Road between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Traffic will be maintained by local law enforcement officers while the lane closures are in place.

“The Duck Creek Connector project is a product of the extensive public involvement process that identified transportation improvements needed for the Red Bank Corridor,” said Keith Smith, Red Bank Corridor project manager for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). “The project was planned in close coordination among ODOT, the City of Cincinnati, the local community, businesses and school representatives and is a testimony to the success of that partnership.”

The Duck Creek Connector is one of five components identified in the Red Bank Corridor’s transportation improvement strategy, as outlined in the Red Bank Corridor Preferred Alternative Implementation Plan. The project’s purpose is to help support economic development in the area and provide infrastructure needed to support new jobs, residents and visitors coming to the Red Bank Corridor. The new, direct connection between Duck Creek Road and Madison Road will also help reduce the level of traffic traveling through the Madison Road and Red Bank Expressway intersection as well as the amount of time it takes to travel through the area, particularly during peak hours.

The remaining components of the Red Bank Corridor improvement plan are in varying stages of planning and development. For updates on each, visit the Red Bank Corridor Project Status page on the Eastern Corridor website.
