**LOCATION: PRESIDENTIAL BANQUET CENTER – KETTERING**
**TIME: 15 March at NOON***
Program: U.S. 35 Superstreet Project and Shakertown Road Project
Increased development in the Beavercreek Area has led to an increase in traffic congestion on US-35 near the Factory and Orchard Lane intersections. Because further development is expected, the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission and ODOT collaborated to determine a solution to the US-35 congestion. Superstreets, like the SR-4 Bypass Superstreets in Butler County, were proposed to improve safety and travel efficiency.
A Superstreet is a non-traditional, signalized intersection that can provide more capacity than a traditional traffic signal. It does not allow side street traffic to turn left or to go straight through the main intersection. These movements instead turn right and do a legal U-turn at a nearby signal to get to their desired path.
The relocation and extension of Shakertown Road will also occur simultaneously by the City of Beavercreek.
