Hebron is an unincorporated community in Boone County, Kentucky. It is the location of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, which serves Cincinnati and the Tri-State (Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana) area.
Previously known as Briar Thicket and possibly Hecla, the community post office established in 1858 was named for the local Hebron Lutheran Church.
Hebron is experiencing aggressive residential, commercial and business growth. Two areas of residential growth contribute to this growth. These areas are focused along Kentucky Route 20 in the central and western parts of Hebron and along Kentucky Route 237 in the northern part of Hebron, (sometimes referred to as The North Bend for its location in the bend of the Ohio River that forms the northernmost geographic area in the state of Kentucky).
Along Kentucky Route 237: In 12 subdivisions under construction along the road, 2,855 homes have been approved but not yet built. More than 1,100 homes have been built in those subdivisions, according to the Boone County Planning Commission. The developments include the neighborhoods (from South to North) Cardinal Cove, Parlor Grove, Settlers Point, Treetops, Thornwilde, Wyndemere, Deer Creek, Rivershore Farms, Northpointe, Taylor Ridge and Conway Hills.
Hebron is served by one daily newspaper, The Kentucky Enquirer (an edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer). Hebron is also served by one weekly newspaper, The Boone County Recorder. Hebron is also served by twelve television stations and many radio stations as part of the Greater Cincinnati media market.
The Northern Kentucky Xtreme are a semi-professional American football team based in Florence, Kentucky, USA. They are currently members of the Mid Continental Football League. The Xtreme will relocate to the Rivershore Sports Complex in Hebron in 2008. Rivershore Sports complex is located on Kentucky Route 8 along the Ohio River.
Traditions Golf Club is also located in Hebron on Williams Road. The club is known for its golf course and extraordinary natural beauty. Founded in 1991, the 18-hole championship golf course has been ranked by Golf Digest as the third best course in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and by Turf Magazine as the second best course. The club is also purported to count in its membership several current and former professional athletes who have residences in Greater Cincinnati including Ken Griffey, Jr., Adam Dunn, Cris Collinsworth. Traditions GC also hosted the Big East Conference Golf Tournament in April, 2008.
Hebron is home to major operations/headquarters such as:
- Amazon.com Regional Fulfillment Centers in World Park (4 of 15 nationwide)
- Toyota North American Parts Center
- United States Playing Card Company
Hebron is served by (and is home to) Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (IATA: CVG, ICAO: KCVG, FAA LID: CVG).
ARTIMIS is Greater Cincinnati's interstate information service. Current highway conditions are available 24/7 locally by dialing 511. For out-of-town drivers or "511"-disabled phone systems, one can call 513-333-3333.
Beginning in Autumn 2007, Kentucky Route 237 underwent a $19 Million rerouting and improvement including widening the road to five lanes from Litton Lane south of Interstate 275 to Cardinal Way. The road is now three lanes from Cardinal Way to just north of North Pointe Elementary School. The improvement features two roundabouts (the second and third of their type in Northern Kentucky). One is located at Cardinal Way, the other at the intersection of Graves Road and Old North Bend Road. The project also yielded bike lanes and an 8-foot-wide (2.4 m) pedestrian path.
On June 15, 2009, Graves Road was permanently rerouted to the new alignment. Traffic using Graves Road now must use the new (partially open) roundabout to access KY 237.
The project was completed in the summer of 2010.
Hebron is served by the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) which serves Northern Kentucky and operates bus links in Cincinnati at Metro's main Government Square hub.
As part of the KY 237 realignment, a TANK Park and Ride facility will be located on the west side of the roundabout with Cardinal Way.
