Today we heard from Pat Manger, Clermont County Engineer
Pat announced an “Eastern Cooridor Meeting” will be held tonight in Milford from 6-8pm. All are welcome.
Pat shared about the following upcoming projects:
-Eastgate North Frontage Road beginning to be completed by Thanksgiving. This will improve the current frontage road, fix the entrance to Eastgate Mall and create access on and off of 32 to allow them to improve the on and off ramps connecting Eastgate Boulevard and 32.
-Eastgate Boulevard beginning in the spring of 2013. This will widen Eastgate Boulevard, widen the bridge, and widen the on and off ramps to 32.
-US 50/SR 131 Milford Parkway beginning in 2013. This will improve the intersection at SR 131, US 50 and Milford Parkway. They will add turn lanes, extend the northbound merge land on SR 131 to accommodate two EB left hand turn lanes from US 50.
-Clermont ITS Phase 2 beginning Spring 2013. Currently, our 14 signal system along 32 operates independently. The plan is to network the entire system and to create a central traffic management center.
-Stonelick Covered Bridge beginning October 2012. This will restore the bridge providing enough capacity for school bus and emergency vehicle passage. It will be posted at 8 ton carrying capacity.
-Clough Pike Widening beginning Spring 2013. This will reconstruct Clough Pike from Glen Este Withamsville Rd to Mt Carmel Tobasco Rd, add a center turn land, add a curb, widen paved shoulders and improve turns at Mt Carmel Tobasco. A sidewalk will be constructed on the north side.
Pat also gave a quick update on the following:
-The projects currently underway on 28 in front of K-Mart will wrap up by the end of August.
-The project currently underway at 28 and 275 will wrap up in the Spring of 2013.
-The ODOT projects involving 275 and 32 will begin in 2014.
-There are also future plans to eventually eliminate the traffic signals along 32.
Next week we will do our spaghetti dinner planning.
