Construction Project Updates
Plainfield Road Roundabout - A roundabout will be constructed at Plainfield Road and Parkview Drive at the entrance of the new Daventry subdivision. Plainfield Road (between Glendale-Milford Road and Cooper Road) will be closed to through traffic during this construction. Although construction of this project is expected to begin early September, the road closure will not take place until preliminary roadwork is completed on Malsbary Road. Road work on Malsbary Road began in September and is nearing completion. It is scheduled for Plainfield Road to close on Monday, October 8th for 10 weeks. As with all construction projects, schedules are dictated by the weather conditions and the schedule may change during the project. Construction updates will be posted as they become available.

The City continues its efforts to provide connectivity between neighborhoods and businesses to frequent destinations around Blue Ash (Parks, Recreation Center, Municipal and Safety Center, Downtown, Golf Course, etc). The 2018 Program will include constructing a new sidewalk on Creek Road from Kenwood Road east to Fallsington Court. A contract was awarded in early October to Prus Construction Company to perform this work. Work is estimated to be completed in early spring.
Traffic Signal Upgrades
The City of Blue Ash has an ongoing program to upgrade the traffic signals throughout the City from incandescent lights to LED (light emitting diode) lights. The LED lights use significantly less electricity, last longer between failures, provide brighter signals and support battery back-up systems at major intersections. Additionally, “count-down” pedestrian signals are being installed at intersections with wide roadways (such as Reed Hartman Highway) to assist pedestrians and battery backup units are being installed at major intersections.
