Scheduled Clermont County construction projects to start 5/24/21:
In Tate Township –S.R. 133 Vegetation Clearing – Between S.R. 774 and Jones Flower Road. Traffic will be maintained by arrow boards, traffic cones and/or flaggers.
In Clermont, SR 32 & Bauer Rd -On Monday, May 24, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will begin nightly lane closures on S.R. 32 and Bauer Road from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following day for the placement of temporary pavement. The lane closures will be in effect through Friday, May 28, and traffic on S.R. 32 will be maintained in a minimum of one lane in either direction, while Bauer Road traffic will be maintained with flaggers.
The RCUT project calls for the elimination of left-turn movements from Bauer Road to S.R 32, as well as the cross-over movement through the intersection. Upon completion of the project, motorists traveling on Bauer Road will be required to turn right onto S.R. 32 and either continue straight or do a legal U-turn at a one-way, signalized crossover to travel in the opposite direction on S.R. 32 or proceed to Bauer Road on the opposite side of the mainline route.
The project is a result of growing safety concerns in which traffic congestion and driver misperceptions of the available gap in opposing traffic have been the source of numerous crashes. In 2019, the intersection was listed on the Governor’s Top 150 list for intersection improvements, and it was ranked as the 44th highest crash location among Urban Non-Freeway intersections in the state.For additional information regarding the project and its background, visit S.R. 32/Bauer Road Intersection Improvement and follow the link to the Public Input site.
