CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
City, county and state leaders have talked
about the Eastern Corridor Project for years, but still construction to most of
the project has not been completed.
The state and county are spending
millions of dollars for the development. So far taxpayers have paid $44 million.
"With all the improvements, we can
reduce the number of vehicle miles traveled in the region by 50-million miles
per year," said Ted Hubbard, Hamilton County Engineer. "We can
reduce accident causing delays by 15-thousand vehicle hours per day."
Those figures came from a preliminary
engineering and environmental study that ODOT spent more than $19.2 million
on. While the Hamilton County Transportation Improvement District kicked
in nearly $9.3 million.
Other work administered by ODOT includes:
- $4.1 million paid to consultants for a
"Relocation of State Rt. 32" study.
- $3.5 million for an environmental analysis
and preliminary engineering study for the Red Bank Corridor.
- $4.8 million for the same type of study for
the Oasis Rail segment of the Eastern Corridor Project.
Meanwhile, the Hamilton County Transportation
Improvement District (HCTID) has already spent close to $1.5 million to get the
public involved, $468 thousand dollars of it spent with Rasor Marketing.
"Our role with the Eastern Corridor
Project is to educate the public and to engage them into giving input into the
project partners," said Mimi Rasor, President of Rasor Marketing.
Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard says all
segments of the Eastern Corridor Project are important, but if studies come
back with no reasonable solutions to build parts of the project, a no build
option is still out there.
"It's extremely disappointing to make
decisions base on innuendo and rumor, make decisions based on fact," said
Hubbard. "At least if we decide based on the facts we don't want to
proceed, you can live with that."
There is a public meeting for the Red Bank
Corridor segment of the project on Oct. 1 from 6 p.m. To 8 p.m. At the
Madisonville Recreation Center.
