Hebron is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Boone County, Kentucky, United States.[1] As of the 2010 census it had a population of 5,929.[2] It is the home to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, which serves Cincinnati and the Tri-State (Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana) area.

History[edit]

Previously known as Briar Thicket and possibly Hecla, the community post office established in 1858 was named for the local Hebron Lutheran Church.[3]

Geography[edit]

Hebron is located in northern Boone County, on the western edge of the Cincinnati-Covington suburbs. Interstate 275 forms the northern edge of the CDP, with the CDP of Francisville to the north. The center of Hebron is focused around the intersection of Kentucky Route 20 and Kentucky Route 237, located 3 miles (5 km) west of the entrance to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Downtown Cincinnati is 16 miles (26 km) to the east of Hebron by I-275 and I-75/71.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Hebron has a total area of 6.4 square miles (16.7 km2), of which 0.012 square miles (0.03 km2), or 0.18%, is water.[2]

Culture[edit]

Media[edit]

Hebron is served by one daily newspaper, The Kentucky Enquirer (an edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer), and 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.

Movies that were filmed in part in Hebron include Airborne[4] which shows portions of KY 8 and KY 20.

Transportation[edit]

Air[edit]

Hebron is served by (and is adjacent to) Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (IATA: CVGICAO: KCVGFAA LID: CVG).

Highways[edit]

Hebron is served by one major interstate highway. Interstate 275 is an outer-belt highway through Northern Kentucky.

It is also served by numerous state highways: Kentucky Route 237 (North Bend Road), Kentucky Route 20 (Petersburg Road), and Kentucky Route 3168 (Limaburg Road).

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.

During late May and early June 2009 work continued for redecking of the KY 237 bridge over I-275. Sidewalk and storm drain work continues.

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.

Bus service[edit]

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.
