Originally developed as part of the North South Transportation Initiative, this project improves I-75 between Keowee Street and Edwin C Moses Boulevard to address safety and capacity concerns by adding continuous through lanes, eliminating left entrance and exit ramps, and increasing the spacing between interchanges. More information is available in the ODOT Project Management Plan . Ohio DOT maintains the official project information.
On October 16,2007, ODOT held a public meeting to share information with the community on the reconstruction and modernization of Interstate 75 through Dayton. The first phase of construction began in fall 2007.
MVRPC presented urban design concepts for consideration in the aesthetics portion of the I-75 downtown Dayton subcorridor design. These concepts represent a collective consensus among the City of Dayton, the Grandview Hospital, the Dayton Art Institute, and MVRPC.
ODOT combined the proposed designs from MVRPC and the City of Dayton into a conceptual design which incorporated further revisions. ODOT presented their Design Aesthetics Proposal.
The Ohio Department of Transportation proposed erecting noise abatement walls along I-75. ODOT proposed a transparent noise wall rather than a solid noise wall on the north side (Grafton Hills neighborhood side) to preserve the viewshed of the area’s major institutions such as the Dayton Art Institute, the Masonic Temple and Grandview Hospital. The south side of I-75 has solid noise walls. ODOT developed a 3D simulation of the noise barrier design proposal.
