Project Timeline Update

In February 2024, Intel announced that it is pushing back its timeframe for completing the two fabs. Since announcing its plans in early 2022, Intel has been a strong community partner for the City of New Albany. The company has reiterated its full commitment to the project, and we expect to see continued progress at the Ohio One site.

Typical construction timelines for semiconductor manufacturing facilities are three to five years from groundbreaking, depending on a range of factors.

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

Construction work continues on the infrastructure improvement projects for Mink Street, Clover Valley Road, Jug Street, Harrison Road and Green Chapel Road.

Mink Street between State Route 161 and Green Chapel Road is being reconstructed. Major reconstruction of Clover Valley Road will occur between Jug Street 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.

Green Chapel Road from Mink Street to Duncan Run is being reconstructed. Briscoe Parkway, a new road, will be constructed connecting Harrison Road to Clover Valley Road.

These projects 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

ODOT is adding a lane in each direction within the existing footprint of the highway and widening bridges. ODOT is also widening the ramp from SR 161 West to I-270 North and making improvements to the Mink Street-SR 161 interchange.

Since the project began, ODOT has completed the widening of the Sunbury Rd. ramp to I-270 southbound and the SR 161 westbound ramp to I-270 southbound. The inside shoulder of I-270 northbound at SR 161 has also been widened.

Current work items include:

•    Median widening on SR 161 between Hamilton Rd. and Kitzmiller Rd.
•    Widening of the SR 161 westbound ramp to I-270 northbound
•    Outside shoulder widening of the I-270 northbound from SR 161 to SR 3
•    Outside shoulder widening of SR 161 from Sunbury Rd. to Hamilton Rd.
•    Work on the U.S. 62 bridge, Hamilton Rd. bridge, and Rocky Fork Bridge

The additional lanes are expected to open by the end of 2024. All other related construction activities should be complete by August 2025.

Upcoming Construction

Phase 2 of Green Chapel Road improvements slated to begin in late 2024

On Nov. 28, 2023, New Albany officials met with residents of Green Chapel Road who live between Clover Valley Road and US 62 to talk about the plans for widening that stretch of the road from two to three lanes and making other functional and aesthetic improvements, including a community path parallel to the road. Officials shared a diagram, or scroll plot, of the proposed improvements and provided details about the design, which is still in the preliminary stages. In addition to the new lane, the project also includes a realignment of the intersection of Green Chapel Road and US 62 and new signals at the intersection.

Work on the project is scheduled to begin in the 4th quarter of 2024 and end in late 2025. Updated information will be posted to the website when it becomes available.
