Project Information

Purpose

  • 5th worst intersection crash location in Fairborn

  • Rear-End Crashes - Colonel Glenn intersects Kauffman at a skewed angle.  This allows vehicles on Colonel Glenn to turn right onto Kauffman at a high rate of speed.  It also makes it more difficult for these drivers to turn their head far enough left to see oncoming traffic on Kauffman.  These factors combined with the high volume of cars making the right turn leads to rear-end collisions

  • Angle Crashes - The skewed intersection and the ease of speeding on Kauffman are two of the factors that may lead to the angle or “T-bone” crashes at this intersection

Dangerous

Inefficient

  • Currently, during the afternoon rush hour, 55% of vehicles using the intersection come to a complete stop

Failed Signal Infrastructure

  • The traffic signal at this intersection will be 50 years old in 2019

  • This intersection has the third most signal maintenance calls in the city

Construction Cost

  • Current construction estimate is $1,190,000

  • Federal grant money through the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) will cover up to $336,694 of construction costs

Schedule

  • ​Design public meeting on January 18th, 2018, 6:00 PM, at the Fairborn Government Building 

  • Design completion in the Spring of 2018

  • Construction public meeting in the Spring of 2019

  • Construction to begin in the Spring of 2019

  • Construction to be complete by the Winter of 2019
