Transportation improvements currently being planned for the Village of Newtown are part of the Eastern Corridor Program. The Eastern Corridor Program is a series of many transportation improvement projects being implemented across the eastern half of the Greater Cincinnati region to:

  • Ease congestion
  • Improve mobility and access
  • Support economic development

The Village of Newtown is located in Segments II and III of the Eastern Corridor which extends between the Red Bank Corridor (Segment I) and the I-275/SR 32 interchange in the Eastgate area of Clermont County (Segment IV). Segments II and III includes US 50/Wooster Pike, SR 125 (Beechmont Levee), and SR 32.

DEVELOPMENT OF PROPOSED TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS

Within Segments II and III, ODOT worked in close coordination with local community representatives, planners and interest groups to re-evaluate and re-prioritize transportation needs, and to develop and evaluate possible solutions that:

  • Focus on the existing transportation network
  • Balance transportation needs with community values and available resources

After receiving input from the community following a 2018 public meeting, ODOT released a Conceptual Alternatives Implementation Plan in 2019 that identified and prioritized 68 recommended transportation improvement projects for the Segments II and III study area.

Multiple projects were recommended within the Village of Newtown to reduce congestion, improve travel safety and make walking and riding bicycles easier and safer. ODOT is completing a feasibility study for several of these projects and through this Open House, is sharing the results with the Newtown community for review and input.
