JUST IN: Austin Landing finally getting traffic light

Work to install the first traffic signal in Austin Landing is targeted to start by the end of the month.

The traffic light — planned for more than three years — will be between Kroger and Kohl’s near the Ohio 741 entrance to the 142-acre mixed use complex in Miami Twp.

The signal will be located at the Landing Way/Liverpool Lane intersection. Installation “should be starting before the end of the month,” said Larry Dillin, president of VisCap Development, which manages Austin Landing, a development that’s home to about 2,500 jobs.

During the work, Dillin urges motorists and others in the area of Austin Landing’s Ohio 741 entrance to be cautious.

The signal was approved by Miami Twp. trustees in 2015 after a traffic study. But long before then, traffic flow, congestion, and pedestrian safety were among the top concerns at the complex that now includes restaurants, shopping, entertainment, apartments, two hotels and office buildings.
