Local Road / Freight Rail
Completed in December 2018, the South Hamilton Crossing project replaced an at-grade crossing of a 4-track CSX railroad mainline at Central Avenue and Pleasant Avenue in Hamilton, Ohio. The City of Hamilton identified the project as a priority for safety, economic development, and mobility reasons in 2012, given the previous at-grade crossing's substandard layout, high train traffic (56 trains per day), and truck traffic restrictions.
The project included the construction of a new overpass over the railroad and the reconfiguration of nearby roads. Benefits include the elimination of one of the most hazardous at-grade railroad crossings in Ohio, improved east-west access on the south side of the city, reduced motor vehicle traffic, the elimination of truck traffic restrictions along the artery, and more efficient freight rail operations. The project will pave the way for economic development in the region, as the overpass provides direct vehicle and truck access to vacant, municipally owned land at the University Commerce Park, the growing Hamilton Campus of Miami University, and office space at Vora Technology Park.
