New I-275/SR 32 interchange ramp opens

 

CLERMONT COUNTY (Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015) – In a ribbon-cutting ceremony today, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) celebrated another step toward the completion of the new and improved Interstate 275/State Route 32 Interchange.

Today, representatives from ODOT and Clermont County were among officials on hand to open the new flyover ramp which provides more direct access to SR 32 from southbound I-275. The ramp opening comes on the heels of the opening of the tunnel to traffic last week, which facilitates traffic traveling from northbound I-275 to eastbound SR 32.

A part of the Eastern Corridor Program’s effort to address problems associated with access to the SR 32 corridor in the Eastgate area, the two-year project involved reconstructing the interchange to provide safer and more efficient travel for motorists. Work at the interchange was the third phase of improvements for the Eastgate area.

“This project is a critical part of the infrastructure of Clermont County and eastern Hamilton County, providing more efficient travel throughout the area,” said ODOT District 8 Deputy Director Tammy Campbell. “We are proud to have worked with the Clermont County Transportation Improvement District, the Clermont County Engineer and the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments in seeing this project through construction.”

 

The first two phases of improvements provided the foundation for this work. Phase 1 realigned and widened lanes along Eastgate North Frontage Road (also known as Eastgate North Drive), and improved access to and from SR 32 and Eastgate Boulevard. Phase 2 included the widening and reconstruction of Eastgate Boulevard over SR 32. Work included relocating the westbound entrance and exit ramps from SR 32 to Eastgate North Drive to improve levels of service along the boulevard. 

 

The John R. Jurgensen Co. was the contractor on the $32 million project.
