I-71 - Western Row Road Interchange
The current interchange has dual southbound on-ramps and dual northbound off-ramps. The interchange is located at the terminus of an originally proposed regional highway and later built as a partial interchange to serve Kings Island Amusement Park opened in 1972. At that time there were no other major traffic generators in the area. Due to changing economic development requirements and increasing congestion on local roads in the area, a complete interchange design to service movements to and from the north is required. A Conceptual Alternatives Study that considered problems and needs for interchanges on I-71 at Western Row Road and SR 741 is complete.
Improvements to address projected traffic by a full interchange, which is needed at Western Row Road, are currently being explored in detail. The next step in the ODOT project development process, the PDP, is the Analysis of Feasible Alternatives and is underway.
