(March 22, 2021 - Blue Ash) 

Construction on the Duke Energy Central Corridor Pipeline is expected to begin in Blue Ash in the next two to three weeks, according to the latest updates from Duke Energy.

Work will begin on Reed Hartman Highway between the former P&G Sharon Woods Innovation Center and Cornell Road. The work will take place typically between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. The entrance drive to nearby restaurants will open at 5:30 a.m. Traffic disruptions during this portion of construction are expected to be minimal.

One of the most notable road closures during this project is expected in June when Glendale Milford Road will be shut down to westbound traffic at Plainfield Road.

When significant traffic changes occur, they will be posted on the Duke Central Corridor Pipeline website, blueash.com, and City social media pages.
