Providing essential east-west connectivity for the Greater Cincinnati region

The Eastern Corridor Program is a regional effort that integrates roadway network improvements, new rail transit options, expanded bus service, bikeways and walking paths to improve travel and access between Greater Cincinnati’s eastern communities and its central employment, economic and social centers.

Comprised of a comprehensive series of projects, the Eastern Corridor Program is addressing critical congestion issues and making travel between and among the eastern communities and the region’s core easier and safer. The Program’s multi-modal solutions are working to address long-standing transportation needs of the Eastern Corridor communities and will provide valuable opportunities for community enhancement, economic development and sustainable regional growth.

The Eastern Corridor Program has been divided into four core segments. Although functionally independent, projects within the segments are interrelated and complementary to each other:

Red Bank Corridor (Segment I)
Red Bank to I-275/SR 32 (Segments II and III)
Eastgate Area to Batavia (Segments IV and IVa)
Oasis Rail Transit


The Eastern Corridor Program is administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the local Eastern Corridor Implementation Partners.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable Federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried-out by ODOT pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 11, 2015, and executed by FHWA and ODOT.
