Project Update: Summer 2023

Watch the latest episode of New Albany Connects for an update on project construction and road improvements, including ODOT’s State Route 161 widening project. Long before the Intel announcement, commuters had already expressed a desire for more lanes. That’s about to happen with ODOT’s 161 improvements project, which will help support the additional traffic expected in the area. Watch the video to learn more.

Long-Term Construction
Mink Street Roadway Improvements: April 2023 - August 2024

Construction has commenced for a significant infrastructure improvement project for the areas surrounding Mink Street, Clover Valley Road, Jug Street and Harrison Road.

The project will reconstruct existing Mink Street between State Route 161 and Green Chapel Road.

This project also includes minor reconstruction of Jug Street for several hundred feet both east and west of Clover Valley Road and the construction of the new Clover Valley Extension that will connect the Jug Street/Clover Valley Road intersection to Mink Street.

Major reconstruction of Clover Valley Road will occur between Jug Street and Miller Road and and minor reconstruction of the Harrison Road Extension (haul road) which will create a four-way intersection with Clover Valley Road.

This project will widen the roadways while improving drainage, safety, and aesthetics and providing access to adjacent agricultural parcels.

State Route 161 Improvements: July 2023 - August 2025

State Route 161 will be widened between I-270 and the U.S. 62 interchange as well as the ramp from SR 161 west to I-270 north to accommodate increased traffic from expected future development in the area. ODOT will be adding a lane in each direction of SR 161 within the existing footprint of the highway. The additional lanes are expected to be open by November 2024, and all other construction activities are scheduled to be completed by August 2025.

Initial Impacts: The Sunbury Rd. ramp to I-270 southbound closed on July 14, 2023 and is estimated to reopen in early October 2023.

Detour: Sunbury Rd. to I-270 northbound to SR 3 to I-270 southbound.

Ramps at the following interchanges may require detours, though closures will be temporary and will not occur simultaneously:

•   SR 161 and I-270 access at Sunbury Rd. and at Little Turtle Way
•   SR 161 at Hamilton Rd., New Albany Rd. and Johnstown Rd. (U.S. 62)
