Eastern Corridor Workshops, April 27 and 28
Input will help shape improvements to “Segments II and III”
Hamilton County (April 22, 2016) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is continuing its analysis of “Segments II and III” of the Eastern Corridor group of projects by hosting Focus Area Workshops.
The Segments II and III study area includes State Route 32 and U.S. Route 50 between the Red Bank Corridor and the I-275/SR 32 interchange in Clermont County.
The workshops will allow those interested in these areas of the project to work alongside ODOT, Hamilton County, Clermont County, the city of Cincinnati, SORTA, and OKI in shaping the improvements. The primary content at each meeting will be the same so attendees can select the most convenient session. However, each workshop will include elements focused on the particular area in which they are located.

Additionally, ODOT’s new online tool allows the public to provide input that will help to identify improvements to aid in this continued analysis. These improvements will add value to communities and businesses within the study area while also addressing transportation issues like safety and congestion.
The new online tool enables individuals to easily provide feedback and includes an interactive map that allows the user to place specific markers on locations they feel need the most attention.
Information gathered from the greater Cincinnati community will be part of the equation used to identify congestion and safety improvements for key routes in the area including Wooster Pike (U.S. 50), Columbia Parkway (U.S. 50), the Beechmont Levee (SR 32), and State Route 125.
The new, interactive feedback tool can be accessed via smart phone, tablet, or computer at: www.EasternCorridor.org
. It will be available to the public through June 15, 2016.
ODOT will also be reaching out to local business and community organizations to encourage their participation in the process. Anyone who would like a project representative to present at a community or organization meeting, can submit a request to EasternCorridor@EasternCorridor.org
. As always, comments, questions, suggestions and ideas can also be submitted to the project team through the Eastern Corridor website at www.EasternCorridor.org
