 U.S. 35 Superstreet Project Background


In an effort to improve congestion and safety at the intersections of U.S. 35 at T.R. 48 (Factory Road) and U.S. 35 at T.R. 1217 (Orchard Lane), ODOT will construct two new, innovative intersections called Superstreets. Previous studies of the U.S. 35 corridor in Greene County recommended eliminating the at-grade intersections and constructing interchanges to convert the four-lane route to a limited access facility in order to improve traffic safety, efficiency and flow. However, funding constraints have dictated the Department consider lower-cost options to move a project forward that will improve safety while meeting current and future traffic demands.  As a result, ODOT developed the U.S. 35 Superstreet project to eliminate the at-grade crossings at the Factor Road and Orchard Lane intersections. Local funding has been made available for this project, and partners have included the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, Beavercreek Township, Greene County Engineer, City of Beavercreek and the Federal Highway Administration.

 U.S. 35 Superstreet Project Description

​The U.S. 35 Superstreet project calls for the construction of Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT) intersections - or, superstreets - at Factory Road and Orchard Lane at Beavercreek in Greene County. A design-build contract was awarded to the John R. Jurgensen company for approximately $14.9 million in early 2019, and preliminary construction began in Spring 2019, and utility relocation will continue through Fall and Winter 2019. A detour will not be required to perform construction activities; however, with the majority of heavy construction beginning in the spring of 2020, temporary lane restrictions may be in effect, and traffic on U.S. 35 may be reduced to one lane in either direction at varying times throughout the project. Construction is scheduled to be completed by late 2022.

 What is a Superstreet?


​A Superstreet is a non-traditional, signalized intersection that can provide more capacity than a traditional intersection. Traffic movements in Superstreet intersections prohibit side-street (minor cross street) traffic to turn left or go straight through the mainline intersection. Instead, motorists will turn right and do a legal U-turn at a nearby, one-way, signalized median crossover to follow their desired path. By allowing for a more efficient movement of traffic, Superstreets reduce congestion, cut down on delays and limit collision opportunities. Typically, a Superstreet intersection reduces the total conflict points from 32 to only 14 or 8, depending upon  the precise design or style, and these potential conflicts are most often lower in severity than those at a traditional intersection.

 Other Corridor Improvements

GRE-35-7.35 - Preventive maintenance project that includes a double application of microsurfacing on U.S. Route 35 from the beginning of the Xenia bypass to the U.S. 68 interchange. Project also includes bridge rehabilitation on U.S. 35 West over old Business U.S. 35. Summer 2018 (#18-0358)
GRE-35-0.00 - Application of a high-friction surface treatment to various ramps at the U.S. Route 35/Interstate 675 interchange. Summer-Fall 2019 (#19-0042)
GRE-35-11.94 - Resurfacing a portion of U.S. 35 between U.S. 68 and Bickett Road. Summer 2019-Spring 2020 (#19-0372)
GRE-675-0.00 - Resurfacing I-675 from the Montgomery County line to North Fairfield Road. Construction also includes bridge rehabilitation, railing replacement, sealing, painting, joint retrofit and deck overlays. Spring 2020-Fall 2022 (#19-0458)
GRE-CR71-3.51 - Relocation and extension of C.R. 71 (Shakertown Road) from Greystone Drive to Factory Road and realigment of Alpha Belbrook Road to intersect Shakertown Road west of Factory Road. The existing intersection of Shakertown Road and U.S. 35 will be eliminated as a result of this work, consistent with other improvements to the U.S. 35 corridor. Summer-Fall 2019 (#19-N053)
MOT-35-18.69 - Reconstruction of the U.S. 35 and C.R. 605 (Smithville Road) interchange, which includes removing the northbound Smithville Road to the westbound U.S. 35 flyover ramp structure and constructing a new access to tie in with the existing southbound Smithville Road to westbound U.S. 35 ramp. Summer 2019-Summer 2020 (#19-0247)
