Malsbary Road Improvement Projects Underway

Two projects are currently underway to improve Malsbary Road, providing more connectivity within the City of Blue Ash.

The larger of the projects will connect Malsbary Road to Kenwood Road at Aldine Drive. The plans include installing a new traffic signal  at that intersection, and roundabout at Alliance Road. These changes will allow traffic to travel from Kenwood Road through to Reed Hartman Highway and Carver Road. The improvements are expected to be complete before Thanksgiving.

During the construction of the roundabout, the intersection of Malsbary Road and Alliance Road will be closed to traffic and a temporary bypass road will be used for access east of Alliance Road. This closure will begin Tuesday, May 23rd. The detour will require that drivers needing access to 4601 Malsbary Road, RockTenn Trucking, and the businesses off Redhill Drive enter and exit from the Reed Hartman Highway and Carver Road intersection. All business west of Alliance Road will need to enter and exit from the Reed Hartman Highway and Malsbary Road intersection.

The second project will connect Malsbary Road through to Cooper Road, between the Hospice of Cincinnati and the new Integrity Express Logistics building. This road will connect directly into the City of Blue Ash Municipal and Safety Center and the Blue Ash Recreation Center. This project is expected to be completed in August, but won’t open to traffic until the Malsbary connection to Kenwood Road is complete and open.
