from DDN.  You can also demo the intersection at their website (very slow to load though)

ODOT considers new intersection
Engineers tout continuous flow design for Austin, 741
By Joanne Huist Smith
Dayton Daily News

DAYTON | Imagine a busy intersection where cars making left turns and oncoming through traffic move at the same time, without the need to yield.

"It's perfectly logical once you see it work," said Steve Stanley, executive director of the Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District. "It will move cars through the intersection faster."

The Ohio Department of Transportation is considering this rarely used design called a continuous flow intersection for improvements at Austin Pike and Ohio 741, he said.

I finally got the demo to download.  It seems likely an interesting, yet confusing concept.  I hate to admit it, but *gulp*, the infamous Michigan-left concept makes more sense  :|

Dayton to forge deal on south airport area
Miami Twp. to be partner in economic district

By Jim Bebbington
Dayton Daily News


DAYTON | The city and Miami Twp. are joining forces to promote development near the city-owned Wright Brothers Airport.

The city and township are close to approving the creation of a joint economic development district for land near the small airport on Montgomery County's southern edge. Dayton's City Commission supported a first reading of the ordinance Wednesday, and it will likely be passed next week.

The 99-year agreement would create a five-member board that would oversee development in some of the land around the airport. Dayton is agreeing to use its city powers to grant economic development incentives that the township cannot. Whatever is developed on the land will be subject to a 1.75 percent income tax, which Dayton and Miami Twp. will split.

The buisness section also  mentions Springboro has engaged Miller Valentine as a consultant to help develope their part of this area.   

This is going to be the new hot area south of town.  Now that the I-675/OH-725 corridor is built out more or less, this will be the next extension...

That arrangement Dayton is doing w. Miami Township sounds similar to the one Springfield worked out re their airport and the surrounding township, though there wasnt much developement that resulted...

In any case, its good to see that south-of-town isn't dead yet.

Also, a new Super-Walmart will be opening up in Miami Township, on Kingsridge, behind that dead K-Mart, next to Fudruckers...

Group picked to build park
Miller-Valentine will develop for Springboro portion

By Jaclyn Giovis
Dayton Daily News


SPRINGBORO | The city of Springboro has selected the Miller-Valentine Group as the developer of its portion of the South Tech Business Park.

"Miller-Valentine is very excited to have been selected by the city of Springboro and looks forward to assisting them in the brokerage and master planning" of the city's 89-acre portion of the 250-acre park, said Jason Woodard, developer for Miller-Valentine Group of Dayton.

South Tech Business Park is along Ohio 741 at Interstate 75, near where construction of the Austin Pike interchange is scheduled to begin in 2007.

Apparently costs on this project are getting a wee bit out of control.  From the 6/21/05 Dayton Daily News:


Soaring cost slows drive toward Austin Pike interchange
By Jaclyn Giovis
Dayton Daily News


DAYTON | The cost for the proposed Interstate 75/Austin Pike Interchange project is now estimated at $47 million about $20 million more than initial estimates showed causing delays and raising questions about how the project will be financed.

Steve Stanley, executive director of the Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District, called the increased cost estimate a "major issue," in a report to TID board members. But Stanley is convinced the project will be completed.

The interchange and related road improvements are expected to boost high-tech development and create about 28,000 jobs.

Austin Pike plans go forward
Interchange proposal active again after brief delay
By Jaclyn Giovis

Dayton Daily News

DAYTON | Planning work on the Austin Pike Interchange Project is moving forward after a temporary delay.

Meanwhile, local officials are working with the Ohio Department of Transportation to close a funding gap that still could complicate progress.

"Key elements and key decisions have been made," said Steve Stanley, executive director of the Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District, on Monday. "We're continuing to move forward on the cost issues."

City, township form agreement

Montgomery County approved a Joint Economic Development District agreement between Miami Township and the city of Dayton at the county commission meeting Tuesday.
 
The agreement would allow the township and the city to share an area adjacent to Wright Brothers Airport along the Austin Pike interchange project site.

It also would allow the township and city to levy a joint tax that they could use to fund further office, commercial and industrial economic development.

Austin Pike tax deal reached
Miamisburg schools, Miami Twp., Springboro have plan to share costs

By Jaclyn Giovis
Dayton Daily News


DAYTON | Two cities, a township and one school district have collaborated to make $20 million worth of road improvements in the Dayton area.

After two years of negotiations, officials from Miamisburg, Miami Twp. and Springboro have drafted a complex tax increment financing agreement to cover the local portion of the state's Interstate 75/Austin Pike Interchange project and improvements to Byers Road and Austin Pike.

The proposed plan covers about 1,000 acres and includes a cooperative agreement with the Miamisburg City School District. The Dayton-Montgomery County Transportation Improvement District has coordinated local planning and financing on the projects.

Ohio 741 office park plans OK'd
Part of growth expected near Austin Pike interchange with Interstate 75


By Stephanie Irwin
sirwin@DaytonDailyNews.com


MIAMI TWP., Montgomery County | A 42-acre office and retail complex at Ohio 741 and Spring Valley Pike will break ground in spring, one of the first signs of commercial growth expected to emerge on the empty land near the Interstate 75/Austin Pike interchange project.

A final development plan for portions of The Exchange at Spring Valley, proposed by Oberer Land Developers Ltd., was approved by the Miami Twp. zoning commission Tuesday night.

Two restaurants Milano's and possibly Cadillac Jack's and five office and retail spaces will line nine acres on the front of the property along Ohio 741 from Ferndown Drive to Miami Village Drive. The remaining land will have about 345,000 square feet of office space in several one- and two-story buildings. Tenants for the office space were not disclosed. Oberer representatives were not immediately available for comment.

Nice aerial pix of my "neighborhood".  I drive by there every day..I think they are already doing some site development...clearing and grubbing.

I guess now that the I-675/OH 745 corridor has built out, this is the next direction for developement...south of the mall area rather than east.

Any big-box store that comes knocking will get a "No thank you" from the five townships and counties and other project partners that wrote a major land use plan to develop the 1,200 acres of open land southwest of the Dayton Mall that are criss-crossed by Austin Pike, I-75, Springboro Pike and Byers Road.

"Our goal is to NOT have that become a retail center," said Steve Stanley, executive director for the Mongomery County Transportation Improvement District. He updated local commercial developers and Realtors on the project last week at the Dayton Area Board of Realtors' annual real estate conference in downtown Dayton.

"We made a very conscious decision from the beginning that anything built there will not undermine the Dayton Mall," he said.

Yeah, the retail threat to the Dayton Mall area is coming from Greene County/Beavercreek/Sugarcreek Twp-Bellbrook. 

And there already is some retail going in south of the "Austin Center
 area, near where that new Dorothy Lane Market @ Settlers Walk is...that stretch of  OH 721 into Springboro has a good chance of becoming a new retail strip...it looks like they are already doing site developement for something across from the DLM.

But it also seems this is the kind of office/corporate development  that would have, in an earlier era, went downtown.


Also, does anyone know if this land use plan has been published anywhere, or is available to the public?

"It's not everyday you build an interchange," he said. "We wanted to make sure that as Dayton and Cincinnati blend together as broad community, this portion along I-75 wasn't overlooked."

Meaning, fill in the gap with more sprawl.

Oberer, Mills partner on $60 million development
Dayton Business Journal - March 3, 2006
by Caleb Stephens
DBJ managing editor

 
Oberer Construction Managers Ltd. has joined forces with Beavercreek office developer Mills Development Cos. on a new office complex at the corner of state Route 741 and Spring Valley Road in Miami Township. The Oberer-Mills project marks the first sizable collaboration between the groups.

Mills will build the office condo portion of the planned 42-acre development, The Exchange at Spring Valley, while Oberer will oversee the retail and large office buildings. The development will cost an estimated $60 million.

"We had the land and recognized they were the best class A developer in our market," said Chris Conley, vice president and partner with Oberer. "While we have substantial office experience ... we didn't bring the credibility into the class A market such as they do."

I don't care how you characterize me. I don't see how adding an exit will hurt anyone, I believe it will add to the area.  Union Centre has proven to be beneficial to West Chester and the Cincinnati/Dayton Metro.  New jobs are being created there, unlike what is going on in some parts of the metro.

^Union Center has successfully pulled jobs from other cities and attracted jobs that could have gone to older, suffering municipalities. Middletown and Dayton both will lose possibilties along the 75 corridor as a result of this interchange, and you will see more sprawl and a loss of agricultural land. You just can't convince me there is a market for all of this when I drive around and see undeveloped industrial and commercial parks pratically in every municipality. I can think of a number of vacant structures even in West Chester, some that have never been occupied. And just a few years after UCB's construction, widening rumors are floating. While I can understand that there are some employers that will never be attracted to the state without these types of developements, we are doing just fine in quantity with two more, the Liberty Interchange, and East Point (Middletown) on the way.

Well, I think it can be argued that these new interchanges do hurt the urban core by facilitating sprawl. While I won't dispute that jobs have been created, how many have been created vs. how many have just been redistributed from within the metro area?

Well that's why we are a capitalistic society and competition is alive and well.  I certainly don't feel bad for Cincinnati not getting the new Dell Distribution center, when Cincinnati could've easily filled a vacant warehouse with Dell.

Thanks for the update, Jeff.

Here's what the paper had to say about the meeting:



Officials detail Austin Pike project goals
New ways for drivers to cross an intersection are ahead for residents when the project is done in the fall of 2010.

By Lawrence Budd
Staff Writer


MIAMI TWP., Montgomery County | More than a mile of new roads built to serve the proposed Austin Pike interchange will feature an intersection like no other in Ohio and take 40 pieces of land including the site for a Jehovah's Witness congregation and an office park of about a dozen businesses while opening up more than 1,200 acres for commercial development.

These were some of the details unveiled Monday during what is probably the final public meeting leading up to construction of the $26.2 million project now scheduled to open in fall 2010. An estimated 100 people attended the three-hour session at Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport on Springboro Pike.

The Ohio Department of Transportation, consultants and area government officials answered questions about the two types of interchanges still being considered at Austin Pike Road, three-quarters of a mile north of the Warren-Montgomery County line.
