Growth and Projects

The stature and growth of West Chester Ohio's business sector significantly increased with the completion of the Union Centre Boulevard/I-75 Interchange in December 1997, the first new interchange in Southwestern Ohio in more than 20 years.  The total cost of this project was $29 million dollars with $22 million in funds coming from the private sector including assessments and $7 million dollars right of way donated. The creation of the Union Centre Boulevard Interchange was the catalyst for West Chester Ohio becoming a prime location for business growth in the Greater Cincinnati area.  Since the opening of the Interchange 19 years ago, West Chester Ohio has realized more than $3.54 billion in new investment, more than 34 million square feet in new construction, and nearly 40,000 new jobs. View all of the exciting new projects in West Chester Township by the year announced.
