The Hartwell Improvement Association is supportive of Option five for the proposed highway exits. We tried to stop the thousands of new car traffic but the exit is coming , so we picked the exit that seems best. Since we will still have the Galbraith Rd Exit, we really do not need to turn left or go straight into Hartwell from the exit. Our neighbors will need your support!! The public hearing for tomorrow is listed below. The in person will be 3-1-22 Here is a link with more information on Thru the Valley , along with their announcement of public hearings https://www.transportation.ohio.gov/.../mega.../75-valley
ODOT to hold virtual, in-person public meetings for I-75 Improvement Project Study The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) invites you to participate in a public meeting to learn about proposed traffic and safety improvements on Interstate 75, between Shepherd Lane and state Route 126, in Hamilton County. Also known as Thru the Valley (TTV), the I-75 improvement is divided into eight phases, and previous meetings related to the project were held more than a decade ago. The purpose of this meeting is to share information about a new alternative that has been developed for Phases 5 and 6, which proposes to unify the interstate along I-75 southbound and provide four southbound lanes and four northbound lanes. In addition to the new alternative alignment on I-75, ODOT will be gathering feedback on potential connections to Shepherd Avenue in the area of Westview Avenue and on various intersection configurations at Millsdale Street and Anthony Wayne Avenue. The project development process and project schedule will also be discussed. Public meetings will be held both virtually and in person.
