MAKING TRAVEL EASIER AND SAFER
The City of Hamilton and surrounding areas of Butler County have been experiencing a resurgence of economic growth and redevelopment. While these changes have had a positive impact on jobs and progress in our community, they have also strained local transportation infrastructure.
The City of Hamilton and Butler County Transportation Improvement District (BCTID) have already completed multiple improvements throughout the city and nearby areas to reduce congestion and improve travel safety.
Now, the city and the BCTID are working in coordination with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to plan the next effort: the North Hamilton Crossing (NHX).
Travel through northeastern Hamilton is often slowed down due to:
Increasing numbers of vehicles on local streets
A higher-than-average frequency of crashes
Delays caused by train crossings
Congestion on bridges across the river
These conditions are expected to get worse as more people and businesses are attracted to the city and nearby areas.
