ODOT coordinating signals on State Route 747
Project to help increase travel efficiency along the route
 
Butler County (October 13, 2017) - Ohio Department of Transportation District 8 Deputy Director Tammy Campbell today announced the district office will undertake a comprehensive installation of 11 new traffic signal controllers with updated signal timing along State Route 747.
 
“The installation and coordination of these new devices will improve travel efficiency along the route,” said Campbell. “This effort will also reduce stopping times, decrease fuel consumption and help offset growing congestion in the area.”
 
The 11 traffic signals included in the project involve the SR 747 intersections at:
Devitt Dr.
Duff Rd.
Provident Dr.
Mulhauser Rd.
Rialto Rd.
Port Union Rd.
Union Centre Blvd.
Beckett Town Center
Smith Rd.
Hutzleman Way
Tylersville Rd.
 
“The intersecting streets will experience slightly longer wait times because of the adjusted timing but we don’t anticipate significant access issues,” said Campbell. “This project is a prime example of our philosophy to use technology to increase traffic flow in existing travel lanes.”
   
Average daily traffic volumes along SR 747 in this area are between 20,000 and 26,000. Timing device installation for the $35,000 project is expected to occur during the day of Oct. 17. Each of the 11 intersections will be set on flash mode for five to 10 minutes to complete the work. Motorists should be alert when driving through the intersections. The timing will be fine-tuned over several weeks after installation to adjust for newly created traffic patterns.
