In addition, on Ohio 741 the road will be re-striped to include dual left-turn lanes for northbound traffic turning left onto Austin Boulevard, Dillon said in an email.
The dual left-turn lanes will lead from Ohio 741 onto westbound Austin with signs directing motorists to north- and south-bond I-75.
The project is expected to cost $1.3 million and be completed in November.
“We are supportive of these efforts to reduce congestion on Austin Bouelvard,” Dillin said.
During construction, people using the path leading out of Austin Landing and across I-75 are being detoured across Austin Boulevard, where a sidewalk leads into Springboro and across the interstate, according to a map provided by ODOT.
When work is completed, path users will stay on the north side of Austin Boulevard and cross the lanes onto I-75 to reach the interstate bridge to Miamisburg.
“The real need on the ramp from Austin to I-75 Northbound is to maintain two lanes all the way to I-75,” Lynn Johnson, a Springboro resident who frequents the intersection, said in an email.

The project has been five years in the making.
RG Properties is still developing Austin Landing and the 60 acres on the south side of Austin Boulevard, now known as Austin South Springboro.
ODOT has made $1.8 million improvements at the Ohio 741-Austin Boulevard intersection to alleviate gridlock experienced at peak traffic periods since the interchange opened in 2010.
