State Representative Scott Ryan (R-Granville Twp.) was among the speakers at Friday’s Cherry Valley Interchange groundbreaking ceremony.


The event marked the beginning of a project that will eliminate the current intersection of State Route 16 and Cherry Valley Road and build a new partial-clover leaf interchange and overpass about a half-mile east of the present-day intersection. The plan is expected to reduce congestion and improve safety at the intersection.


This project will greatly improve safety and traffic flow for current users, and will also provide a major piece of the puzzle toward future infrastructure upgrades that are key to economic development and job creation,” Rep. Ryan said.


Construction is scheduled to begin August 17th and is expected to be completed in Fall 2016, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation. The projected cost is expected to be just over $31 million, with $21 million of it coming through a contribution from the Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC).
