US 68 & SR 235 Intersection Improvement (PID 111657) 

In ODOT’s most recent ranking of high crash rural locations, the intersection of US 68 and SR 235 in Xenia Township, Greene County, Ohio ranked #34 and was the second highest ranking intersection in Greene County on the list. Working toward the goal of zero deaths on Ohio’s roadways, ODOT evaluated several alternatives for the intersection and is proposing to construct a single lane, modern roundabout to improve the safety of residents of Xenia Township and the traveling public. Construction is expected to begin in Spring 2023 and construction completed in Fall 2023.

Why are we holding a virtual public meeting?

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s office has prohibited mass gatherings and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended using social distancing  to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  As a result of these directives, ODOT is now utilizing the internet to conduct public involvement meetings, which will allow us to continue the important responsibility of engaging with the public about transportation projects.
