The proposed commuter rail
would be 17 miles from downtown Cincinnati to Milford.
Much of the track alignment
would use publicly-owned rail right-of-way and existing freight lines. In other
places, new tracks would be built to complete necessary connections. For
planning purposes, the Oasis corridor is divided into four segments which will
be constructed in phases:
Segment No. 1:
Riverfront Transit Center to the Montgomery Inn Boathouse (1 mile)
Segment No. 2:
The Boathouse to U.S. 50 in Fairfax (7 miles)
Segment No. 3: U.S. 50 in Fairfax to the Ancor area in Anderson
Township, slightly northeast of Newtown (4 miles). It might run alongside parts
of the relocated Ohio 32 or an alternate alignment.
Segment No. 4:
Ancor area in Anderson Township to Milford (5 miles)
