Traffic Pattern Changes Coming for U.S. 22/SR 3

Warren County (Friday, Nov. 23, 2018) - The Ohio Department of Transportation District 8 Deputy Director Tammy Campbell today announced that traffic pattern changes will be implemented on the U. S. Route 22/State Route 3 corridor.
“There has been significant growth in traffic that has contributed to a substantial increase of congestion on this route,” said Campbell. “The new measures we are including will help reduce backups and improve safety.”
These improvements are the result of a U.S. 22/SR 3 corridor study and included an analysis of the Creek Woods Place/Old 3C Highway intersection west of the Little Miami River, and Old 3C Highway intersection located east of the Little Miami River.
During the next two months the changes include:
  • Installation of overhead flasher at the two intersections
  • Prohibition of left turns during peak hours – Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
    • At Creek Woods and Old 3C intersection (west of the Little Miami River) - prohibit left turns from Old 3C
    • At Old 3C (east of the Little Miami River) – prohibit left turns from Old 3C and from U.S. 22/SR 3
  • Lower speed limit to 45 mph - completed.
The current schedule will implement changes at the Creekwoods/Old 3C intersection first and once completed, will include alterations to the Old 3C intersection east of the Little Miami River.
“We will continue to monitor the traffic flow and crash patterns along the corridor after the improvements to see if additional measures are needed.”
There has been a 31 percent increase in traffic volumes on U.S. 22/SR 3 since 2006. There was also a 77 percent increase in crashes in the vicinity of the two intersections since 2010. In addition, 75 percent of angle/left turn crashes throughout the corridor have occurred during peak travel hours.
To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
