BIKE & PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENTS, BEECHMONT LEVEE AREA FEASIBILITY STUDY (DECEMBER 2021)
(HAM – Little Miami Scenic Trail Extension to Ranchvale, PID 113602/115291)

ODOT has worked in coordination with Anderson Township and the City of Cincinnati to make it safer and easier for bicyclists and pedestrians to connect to travel along Beechmont Avenue (SR 125), between the Little Miami Scenic Trail bridge project and nearby neighborhoods. This Feasibility Study documents the alternatives evaluated, results of engineering and environmental studies conducted to date, and public input received. It also identifies the preferred alternative and next steps. Funding has been secured for two phases:

Phase 1: Elstun Road, from Beechmont Avenue/SR 125 to Spindlehill Drive – Construction will begin in Spring 2023
Phase 2: Spindlehill Drive to the Little Miami Scenic Trail – Construction will begin in Spring 2024

SR 32 IMPROVEMENTS, VILLAGE OF NEWTOWN FEASIBILITY STUDY (NOVEMBER 2021)
(PID 86462)

In the Conceptual Alternatives Implementation Plan for Segment II/III (August 2019), several improvement concepts were proposed to address safety and congestion concerns along SR 32 in the Village of Newtown. In addition to road improvements, the proposed concepts include the construction of a shared-use path to provide an improved connection to the Little Miami Scenic Trail and the Lake Barber Trail. This report documents the process used to review project alternatives and choose a preferred alternative for the SR 32 Improvements, Village of Newtown project. (Note: Attachment C has been divided into two parts to reduce file size.)

SR 32/EIGHT MILE ROAD INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS FEASIBILITY STUDY (SEPTEMBER 2020)
(PID 110991)

ODOT has coordinated with Anderson Township to develop plans for improvements at the SR 32 and Eight Mile Road intersection. The plans are designed to address congestion and the high number of crashes that occur in the vicinity and to repair a landslide just east of the intersection. This Feasibility Study documents the alternatives evaluated, results of engineering and environmental studies conducted to date, and public input received. It also identifies the preferred alternative and next steps.

This project was listed as a recommended project in the Conceptual Alternatives Implementation Plan for Segment II/III (August 2019).

Construction plans are currently being finalized and construction of the project is expected to begin in the Fall of 2022.

 


CONCEPTUAL ALTERNATIVES IMPLEMENTATION PLAN (AUGUST 2019)

This report outlines an Implementation Plan for 68 recommended transportation projects developed for Segments II and III of the Eastern Corridor Program. The plan summarizes the engineering studies, environmental considerations, and public involvement activities undertaken to develop the proposed transportation projects. In addition, it provides a direction for moving each project forward. While there is no funding available for these projects at the current time, the Implementation Plan includes potential project sponsors and funding sources for each project, to serve as a roadmap for municipalities and communities within the Segments II and III area, as well as Hamilton County, OKI, and ODOT as they prioritize future transportation projects. (Note: Appendices A and B have been divided into multiple parts to reduce file size.)

EASTERN CORRIDOR SEGMENTS II and III TRANSPORTATION NEEDS ANALYSIS REPORT (JULY 2017)
This report provides the results of the transportation needs analysis prepared for Segments II and III of the Eastern Corridor Program in 2016 and 2017. Needs were identified through technical studies (traffic volume, travel time, congestion and crash data) as well as stakeholder input. Information from the report will be used to help develop solutions to the transportation needs identified.

EASTERN CORRIDOR SR 32 RELOCATION (SEGMENTS II/III) (AUGUST 2015)
STATUS UPDATE AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FURTHER PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

This document outlines ODOT’s recommendations and related rationale for a revised approach to the SR 32 Relocation project.  It also summarizes the findings of project-related activities, coordination efforts and assessments completed between June 2013 and July 2015, upon which ODOT’s recommendations are based.

Status Update and Recommendations for Further Project Development

 


SR 32 RELOCATION SITUATION ASSESSMENT (NOVEMBER 2014)
Completed as part of the SR 32 Relocation project’s collaborative process, the Situation Assessment report summarizes the varying perspectives of just over 100 project stakeholders and offers a set of possible options for moving forward. Information from this report will be used to further inform the project development process.

SR 32 FEASIBILITY STUDY ADDENDUM (DECEMBER 2012)
The SR 32 Relocation Feasibility Study Addendum clarifies and updates the March 2012 report to take into account public comments and agency input received after the SR 32 Relocation public involvement meeting held August 2, 2012. Updated recommendations have been incorporated into the project development process.

SR 32 RELOCATION FEASIBILITY STUDY (MARCH 2012)
The Feasibility Study, following ODOT’s new Project Development Process (PDP), evaluates the preliminary alternatives carried over from Tier 1 (see the Tier 1 DEIS) and makes recommendations about corridors to be advanced for further study – as shown on Revised Figure 17 – Alternative Corridors Recommended for Advancement. No decisions on the location of specific alignments or a preferred alternative have been made. The corridors depicted on all of the maps in the Feasibility Study are preliminary, some of which have been eliminated from further consideration by the Feasibility Study, or continue to be refined. Preliminary impacts reported in the Feasibility Study were calculated for broad corridors, and will also continue to be updated as alternatives are refined and avoidance and minimization measures are further developed.

Information included in the Feasibility Study was presented for public review at a Public Involvement Meeting held on August 2, 2012. Click here to review materials presented at that meeting and notes from the Question and Answer session.
