The project is contingent on a successful application for nearly $2 million from the Ohio Public Works Commission.
Development Director Zach Woodruff said the proposal calls for improvements to about a third of a mile of N. Hamilton Road from the city limits at the railroad bridge south to Poth Road. The section of N. Hamilton Road from the railroad bridge south to Woodcliff Drive would be divided with a landscaped median.
The plans also call for upgraded bus stops at Hamilton Road’s intersections with Woodcliff Drive and Poth Road; a new traffic signal just north of Poth Road; and a paved recreational trail on the east side of N. Hamilton that would provide pedestrian access to Whitehall Community Park. The trail would extend from Woodcliff Drive south to Poth Road.
