I-71 Corridor DEIS

In 2001, the I-71 Corridor Preliminary Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was completed. The Interstate‑71 (I-71) Corridor, is a transportation corridor that extends approximately 19-miles between Covington, Kentucky and Blue Ash, Ohio. The proposed project considered four alternatives and includes the 19-mile LRT line with either 20 or 21 stations and a yard and shop facility. The alternative alignments and station locations and station types were identified during a collaborative effort among the residents, local governments, the business community and the I-71 Corridor Oversight Committee. The proposed LRT project also includes the improvements of both the No-Build Alternative and the Transportation System Management Alternative identified during the planning process.

Questions regarding the study should be directed to Robert Koehler, Deputy Executive Director, at rkoehler@oki.org or (513) 619-7676.
