This project is highly important to the safety of the traveling public in and thru Greene County and is to save lives. This proposed interchange is part of the final component of the long-term project to upgrade US 35 from I75 (Dayton, OH) to IR 64 (Charleston, WV).
This project is to replace the existing at-grade US 35/Valley/Trebein intersection with an interchange of Valley Trebein over US 35.

This part of the final component of the long-term project to upgrade US 35 from I75 (Dayton, OH) to IR 64 (Charleston, WV).
In 2018, ODOT TRAC awarded funds for the design and right of way for this project.
In 2017 Highway Safety Improvement Plan, this intersection ranted 105th in the state for suburban intersections for crashes from 2013-2017.
This is the first traffic signal after driving 130 miles (or 2 hours) west across the state of Ohio on US 35 from Point Pleasant, WV.
The types of crashes that occur at this intersection unfortunately are severe as many involve semis. There are also capacity issues with the current intersection which adds to the safety issues. During peak times, vehicles back up beyond Dayton-Xenia Rd, up the off ramp on US 35 and on US 35 toward Dayton. Many safety improvements have occurred to this intersection such as additional signage, flashing signage, etc., however, safety issues still exist and congestion continues.
By 2038, US 35 approach to the signal at Valley-Trebein will be a Level of Service of F.
This project is not a new project. This intersection improvement was actually identified in the 1976 and 1987 Thoroughfare Plans as a proposed/needed improvement. This project started in the planning with ODOT in 2007 and has been progressing thru the project process.
The original project with ODOT was three intersections: Factory, Orchard and Trebein/35. Due to the size of the project, it was broken into two projects due to funding restrictions.
The intersections of Factory and US 35 and Orchard and US 35 are currently under construction and will be completed later this year. That is what is being called the superstreet project.
