The Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District (MCTID) announced the completion of the roadway improvements to US 40 as part of the I-70/75 Airport Logistics Access Project which began 18 months ago. MCTID marked the occasion today at a celebration ceremony with regional partners.
The $12 million construction project addressed roadway design issues while adding capacity to reduce congestion, improve safety, and support the development of the growing logistics hub. The work included widening a portion of US 40 to five lanes from just west of Union Airpark Blvd. to Airport Access Rd., improving the interchange at US 40 and Airport Access Rd. and general improvements to the water and sewer lines within the project area.
Michael B. Colbert, Montgomery County Administrator, officiated the event.
The guest speakers included:
- Judy Dodge, Montgomery County Commissioner (pictured below)
- Carolyn Rice, Montgomery County Commission President
- Deborah A. Lieberman, Montgomery County Commissioner
- Crystal Corbin, Executive Director, MCTID
- John Applegate, City Manager, City of Union (pictured below)
Support for this project came from the City of Vandalia, Ohio Public Works Commission, JobsOhio, the Dayton Development Coalition, the City of Union, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Dayton, Montgomery County, and the Ohio Department of Transportation.
