$60K grant will study three accident 'hot spots'

An ordinance passed unanimously by Cincinnati City Council last month means that three of the City's "hot spot" accident locations will be studied by the Department of Transportation and Engineering (DOTE).

The ordinance approves the acceptance and appropriation of $60,000 in Ohio Department of Public Safety grants to analyze Reading Road, between Clinton Springs Avenue and Paddock Road and between Avon Drive and the Norwood Lateral (OH-562), as well as Glenway Avenue between Cleves Warsaw Pike and Ferguson Road.

Information gathered by DOTE will be used to make immediate, feasible changes to the roadways and to plan longer-term solutions to reduce the number of traffic crashes.

No matching funds are required from the City.
