Project Date: 2016
The Gemini Parkway extension project constructed a new boulevard to provide access to the new IKEA store at the Gemini Parkway and I-71 interchange and promoted the redevelopment of the old Polaris Amphitheater area while providing another east-west connection on the south side of Delaware County.
This project included the construction of a new roadway from Orion Place to Worthington Road, including the realignment of Worthington Road, East Powell Road, Olde East Powell Road, and Olde Worthington Road.
