The State Route 63
Extension evolved from the Trenton Bypass project, originally
planned by the Ohio Department of Transportation in the early
1980s. The Butler County Engineer's Office picked up the project
in the 1990s and through various studies determined that an extension
of SR 63 from SR 4 west through the area just south of Trenton
made better sense given Butler County's population growth and
changing transportation patterns. The new route would also provide
better opportunities for economic development.
This project lives
on as the "Pioneer Parkway" and is under development
by the Butler County Transportation Improvement District (TID).
Below are some informational links to information about the project.
- Pioneer Parkway brochure - A new tri-fold brochure
published in July 2011, downloadable here as a PDF file, providing
a good general overview of the project complete with map.
- Butler County TID web site - The TID will update its
web site with current status reports about the project.
State Route 63 Extension archived information page - During the 1990s through
about 2003, the Butler County Engineer's Office revived and developed
this project, performing numerous engineering and environmental
studies as well as holding public informational meetings. The
original SR 63 Extension web page was maintained here on the
BCEO web site as a means to provide updated information to the
public and committee members, including meeting dates and times,
questions and answers about the project, maps, and other vital
info. This page has been preserved and archived here. It received
its last update on December 12, 2003. The project chronology
in the lower half of the page provides an excellent historical
account of the project's development from its earliest years
through the turn of the century.
