In May, the Liberty Township Board of Trustees approved a resolution to take another step towards the vision for a more pedestrian-friendly community. A feasibility study was approved to take a closer look at a connection from Liberty Center over State Route 129 to Cincinnati Children's Liberty Campus and the Liberty Commons Kroger Marketplace development. The study, led by LJB, Inc., will explore both a combined pedestrian/vehicular bridge connection along with a pedestrian-only bridge. The study will be completed by the end of the year and provide Liberty Township with more information related to the costs, aesthetics, funding sources and construction schedules. The completed study will assist the Board in determining next steps.
In 2017, the Liberty Township Board of Trustees completed and released a pedestrian feasibility study which focuses on connectivity around the Township's central business district. The goal was to look at existing infrastructure and identify general improvements that could connect walking/cycling pathways to amenity areas.
The study area included Liberty Way to Butler-Warren Road to Bethany Road and over to Yankee Road, including the Cincinnati-Dayton corridor. While the Township studied the central business district, it's important to note many of the key learnings can be extended to other areas of the community.
