I-675/Grange Hall Rd Interchange
The proposed I-675/Grange Hall Road interchange project is in the planning stages of the modification of the I-675/Grange Hall Road interchange to upgrade the existing interchange from a partial interchange to a full interchange. Work associated with this portion of the project includes a Conceptual Alternative Study (CAS) and Interchange Modification Study (IMS), along with supplemental research and documents, for the planning portion of this modification.

The purpose of the I-675/Grange Hall Interchange project is to improve travel efficiency and safety as well as better access to the current major regional business/employee centers of
WPAFB, Wright State University, and Soin Medical Center on Pentagon Blvd in the project area. This project will modify the I-675/Grange Hall interchange to a full interchange that considers impacts on local businesses and the surrounding community to the degree consistent with the travel efficiency, system linkage goals, fiscal responsibility, and safety.
The City has received Congressionally earmarked funding in the past. The last one received was by Representative Dave Hobson for Indian Ripple Widening (ODOT PID 80250) in 2010 as part of the $2.3 million federal funding for the widening of Indian Ripple Rd from Sylvania Dr. to Darst Rd to 5 lanes.
Measurements of success for this project will include the following: improved traffic efficiency, increased safety through crash reduction, decreased congestion, increased roadway Level of Service, improved access to regional employment centers (WPAFB, WSU, Soin Medical Center).
Within 0.5 miles of the proposed completed interchange is 1,173,193 SF of existing office/retail space (not including square footage within the gate at WPAFB). While a large percentage of this space is occupied, there is a significant amount that is currently vacant and/or underutilized. Having a full interchange at this location will give users more readily available/attractive options of coming in from the west (both from less congestion on Col. Glenn Hwy, as well as the future ramp being within 1/4 mile of the Grange Hall Rd/Col. Glenn Hwy intersection) to utilize retail, ultimately making the retail establishment more successful, and encouraging expansion or at least discourage owners from closing up shop due to lack of customers. An average of 2.5% annual development of the vacant 35 acres of land within 1/2 mile of the proposed interchange out to 10 years, or 25%, that equates to 8.75 acres of development, which will be approximately 30,625 square feet of new commercial space.
