is the scope of the project?

A new interchange was built at I-275 and Graves Rd. Specifically, these improvements:


  • Provided a new double crossover diamond (DCD) interchange at I-275 and Graves Rd. This innovative solution has been growing in popularity because it supports safer traffic movements by eliminating left turns made against oncoming traffic. The new interchange allows for on and off access to and from I-275 at Graves Rd.

  • Extended the third westbound lane on I-275 past Graves Rd.

  • Built an additional travel lane on eastbound I-275 between Graves Rd. and KY 237 

  • Widened and realigned Graves Rd. to avoid historic farmland and minimize the impact to local streams

  • Shifted the intersection of Williams Rd. and Graves Rd. away from the new ramps

  • Improved the intersection at Graves Rd. and KY 20

  • Made safety enhancements at the KY 237/Hebron interchange

  • Provided sidewalks along Graves Rd. from KY 20 to KY 237


are these improvements taking place?

The purpose of the Graves Rd. Interchange Project was to improve mobility and safety in this rapidly-growing area in northern Boone County.


The previous KY 237 interchange with I-275 was experiencing substantial traffic congestion, including traffic backing-up onto mainline I-275 at the KY 237 westbound off-ramp. The surrounding area is expected to see continued traffic growth as a result of changes at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and the associated business and industrial facilities. Additionally, residential developments north and south of I-275 continue to add to the demand on the surrounding roadway network.


will work begin and end?

The new interchange at Graves Rd. and I-275 is OPEN! 

The new Graves Rd./KY 495 exit is Exit 8. The existing Hebron exits 8A and 8B have been renumbered to 6A and 6B. 

Work on the southern portion of the project from the new Graves Rd. bridge to KY 20/Petersburg Rd., and on the northern section from Worldwide Blvd. to KY 237/North Bend Rd. was completed in summer 2022.
