New traffic pattern slated for I-275/SR 32 interchange

 

CLERMONT COUNTY  (Thursday, June 12, 2014) – Work on the I-275 and SR 32 Interchange improvement project will include the following  lane restrictions this week:


 

·    Night time work will require lane closures from 9 p.m. Monday, June 16 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, June 17 on southbound I-275 and westbound SR 32.

 

·         Beginning at 6 a.m. Tuesday, June 17, a significant change in traffic pattern will be in place on I-275. Work on southbound I-275 will require traffic to move to the west in preparation for what is called a “contraflow” configuration – where both north and southbound traffic will travel on what is currently the southbound lanes of traffic. Northbound traffic will be switched to the southbound side sometime in the near future. Four lanes of traffic will continue – two lanes in each direction – and additional signage will be placed throughout the area to alert motorists to the changes. In addition to the changes to southbound I-275, the ramp from westbound SR 32 to southbound I-275 will be reconfigured. Beginning Tuesday, June 17, westbound SR 32 traffic will access southbound I-275 traffic from the left, not the right as it does currently.

 

Additional changes will continue throughout the month of June and into the summer, and notifications of upcoming work will continue to be distributed.

 While it will take some time for drivers to get used to the changing pattern of traffic on I-275 and SR 32, these changes are critical to improving safety in and around the Eastgate area. The interchange improvements are just one phase of work taking place around Eastgate to support better traffic flow through the area.

 Lane realignments and signal timing improvements have already been completed on Eastgate North Frontage Road. The reconstruction of Eastgate Boulevard over SR 32 is ongoing and a modified intersection will provide new access on SR 32, wider lanes and better access for businesses in the area. Improvements will also be made along SR 32 between I-275 and Batavia to reduce traffic signals and improve connectivity between the local road network and SR 32.

 

Each project is happening in an integrated sequence where the construction of one project lays the foundation for the next. While the priority for transportation planners is to improve safety for all who travel through the area, transportation improvements will also provide the infrastructure for continued economic development and investment throughout the county.
