If individuals could not attend a workshop
ODOT’s new online tool allows the public to provide input that will help to
identify improvements to aid in the
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.
