The City anticipates an increase in traffic along Mink Road during the months of July and August as initial work begins in preparation for construction of Intel’s recently announced investment in two state-of-the-art chip manufacturing factories on a nearly 1,000-acre site in New Albany. Miller Road, east of Clover Valley Road, and Clover Valley Road, south of Miller Road, are currently closed. Jug Street, between US-62 and Beech Road, is open to local traffic.
The city is also constructing a haul road north of Jug Street at Harrison Road to divert truck traffic headed to and from the Intel site that is expected to open in August. The largest single private-sector investment in Ohio history, the Intel project is designed to boost domestic production of advanced semiconductors that will power a new generation of Intel products.
