The final SR 32 Relocation project Situation Assessment is now available for review. A copy of the Assessment and additional information is posted on the SR 32 Relocation Project Status page.
As one of the primary thoroughfares within the Eastern Corridor region, SR 32 is an important element of the Eastern Corridor Program. Currently, this roadway experiences high volumes of commuter, heavy truck and residential traffic. This creates high levels of congestion and accident rates and poor levels of overall service. In addition, travel is primarily limited to vehicular traffic.
The proposed SR 32 Relocation project is intended to address these issues and provide direct, multi-modal access to US 50, the Red Bank corridor and I-71.
The SR 32 Relocation project will:
- Expand capacity and consolidate access points on SR 32
- Improve safety and decrease travel time
- Implement roadway network improvements to improve mobility
- Incorporate accommodations for new rail transit, expanded bus service, bicyclists and pedestrians
- Shift the western end of SR 32, which currently intersects with Beechmont Avenue, north to create a new link between SR 32, US 50 (Columbia Parkway) and the Red Bank Road business corridor
- Construct a new, multi-modal clear-span bridge across the Little Miami River to connect SR 32, US 50 and Red Bank Road
The SR 32 Relocation project is being developed in close coordination with the other Eastern Corridor Program projects.

In the Tier 1 FEIS, a number of preliminary project corridors were identified for further study. Since then, the project team has performed and reviewed the results of various environmental and technical studies to determine which of these corridors should be advanced for further consideration.
The results of these efforts are presented in the SR 32 Relocation Feasibility Study Report. In addition, the Feasibility Study presented recommendations on which corridors to advance and which to eliminate from consideration.
The Feasibility Study and its recommendations were made available for public review in the summer of 2012 and shared at a series of public involvement meetings held in July and August of 2012. Portions of the Feasibility Study and its recommendations have been updated following the public comment period, agency review and subsequent evaluations. An addendum documenting the updates is now complete and posted on the SR 32 Relocation, Study Documents page.
Below is an updated map illustrating the project corridors recommended for further analysis in the SR 32 Relocated Feasibility Study Addendum (December, 2012). NOTE: A “corridor” is a broad band within which the relocated SR 32 could be located. Corridors are much wider – typically by hundreds of feet – than the actual roadway would be.
