Tri-state board OKs $3.75 million grade separation project in Ohio

The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) board earlier this month approved $3.75 million for a railroad grade separation project in Butler County, Ohio.

The South Hamilton Crossing project is aimed at improving traffic safety, facilitating east-west connectivity and encouraging economic development opportunities, according to the project's webpage.

Funds for the grade separation project were part of a package totaling more than $7 million that will be used toward seven transportation projects in Butler and Hamilton counties.

"The funding approved by the OKI Executive Committee supports projects of vital importance to the economic health of our region," said OKI Board President Kevin Lynch in a press release. "In addition, the funding will provide transportation infrastructure improvements for our community."

The money was allocated through the Surface Transportation Program for Ohio for fiscal-year 2016.
