The timeline for the road construction project that will add a third lane of travel to eastbound state Route 32 in the Eastgate area has been moved up.

The project, which is part of segment 4a of the Eastern Corridor program, is intended to improve traffic flow from Eastgate to Batavia, according to Charlie Rowe, transportation engineer for the Ohio Department of Transportation, District 8 in Lebanon.

Due to $5 million in funding that was recently secured from ODOT’s Highway Safety Improvement Program, the project start date has been moved up from fiscal year 2021 to spring 2018.

The additional travel lane will start at the intersection of Glen Este-Withamsville Road and go beyond the intersection of Old State Route 74, according to Rowe. An exact end point has yet to be determined.

“A new third lane on state Route 32 beginning at Glen Este-Withamsville Road will help ease congestion and improve safety for drivers who travel through this area,” Betty Hull, communications counselor for the Clermont County Transportation Improvement District said.

    First they should repave old St. Rt. 32 between Batavia and Burg. A disaster waiting to happen, and old 32 Batavia hill should be closed, those guardrails will not stop a motorcycle let alone a school bus. I hope Batavia schools are not allowing school busses to use that road.
