Main Street and Hamilton Road Intersection Improvements

Ohio Department of Transportation

East Main Street and South Hamilton Road Intersection Improvements 

The intersection of Main Street and Hamilton Road has been identified as one of the most dangerous in Ohio. As part of the Governor’s Top 150 safety project, a study is being initiated to examine current traffic patterns and safety issues and evaluate potential alternatives to reduce accidents and provide improved access.

As part of the project, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the City of Whitehall are developing planning, environmental analysis and preliminary engineering. To ensure the proposed project is a success, we are soliciting stakeholder input.
