State Route 63 Extension
Now called the
Pioneer Parkway

July 27, 2011

Pioneer Parkway

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.
  • BCEO 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.
