I-75 & Millikin Road Interchange Study
THANK YOU FOR VISITING OUR VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE!
Liberty Township, in partnership with the Butler County Transportation Improvement District and the Ohio Department of Transportation, has put this site together to share information about potential transportation improvements being considered at I-75 and Millikin Road.
The formal comment period for this public input opportunity has closed, but feedback can always be shared with our project team via the contact information noted below.
This site is a self-guided tour through a series of tabs that will walk you through the various improvement options under consideration at I-75 and Millikin Road.

New interstate projects go through a planning and evaluation process that includes what’s called a “Purpose and Need” statement. And basically, that’s just what it sounds like. What purpose will this project serve, and why is it needed?
The Purpose and Need statement for the proposed interchange at I-75 and Millikin Road reflects the need to make sure that our existing roads meet our travel needs today – and tomorrow.
Liberty Township is one of the fastest growing communities in southwest Ohio with a 400 percent population increase from 1990 to 2010. This significant growth has contributed to ongoing residential and commercial development. Investing in infrastructure that improves safety, eases congestion, and expands access to destinations throughout the township is one of the township’s highest priorities. It’s our job is to make sure that our roadways support both current and anticipated travel patterns.
In addition to supporting current traffic needs and planning for future travel demands, this potential project is also an integral component of the township’s Comprehensive Vision Plan, which included significant public review and comment regarding things like mobility, pedestrian access, economic vitality, and other quality of life considerations.
An additional regional study, known as the North-South Initiative, was completed in 2004 and evaluated transportation needs along the I-75 corridor from Cincinnati to Dayton. The North-South Initiative identified improvement opportunities specifically in the area between Liberty Way and SR 63. Our current project is a continuation of that study. More recently, a Feasibility Study was performed for this project. It identified that an interchange at I-75 and Millikin Road was an appropriate solution to solving growing congestion in our area. We are currently evaluating what type of interchange best fits the corridor, meets the project’s Purpose and Need, and serves our community.
