If you've traveled through the Kings Island area recently, you've probably noticed a few orange barrels along Kings Island Drive. Crews are currently working on the installation of an underground storm pipe.
As a result of this work,
one lane of northbound Kings Island Drive is closed through Thursday, September 17. The lane should reopen to traffic by 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 17. Signage will be placed in the project area to alert drivers of changes to traffic patterns.
All lanes will be open to traffic Friday through Sunday.
Construction work is underway on Kings Island Drive
The Kings Island Drive Improvements project involves widening Kings Island Drive to better support incoming traffic off of I-71.
Improvements also include the addition of a left turn lane into Kings Island for southbound traffic, new medians, new curbs and gutters, new traffic signals, overhead signage, decorated lighting and a bike path from Western Row Road to Great Wolf Drive.
This work is fully-funded and expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
