Construction began this week on the Kennedy Connector, a roadway extension designed to improve access to I-71 from the neighborhoods of Oakley and Pleasant Ridge. The roadway will also provide access to the Oakley Station development now under construction. More from Building Cincinnati:
The first phase of the two-year, $30 million project began in three locations: On Ibsen Avenue, which will be closed between Marburg Avenue and Ridge Road and will be open on weekend afternoons; on Ibsen Avenue between Ridge and Madison roads, which will be closed until crews can install two new water mains later this summer; and at the intersection of Duck Creek Road and Kennedy Avenue, where a temporary roadway is being built so that construction crews can eventually build the new extension of Kennedy Avenue.
