U.S. 35 Superstreet

If you've ever traveled westbound from Xenia towards Dayton at rush hour, you've probably encountered a heavy backup along the way.  That's going to improve by replacing the traditional stoplights at Factory Road and Orchard Lane with what ODOT is calling a "superstreet", where cars on Factory and Orchard will only be able to make a right-hand turn.  Motorists who wanted originally to turn left or go straight will do a legal U-turn at a nearby one-way, signalized median crossover to backtrack to the intersection and turn right (if they originally wanted to go straight) or continue straight ahead (if they originally wanted to turn left).  The picture below does a nice job providing a visual.  I just think of it as a stretched-out roundabout.

Read more about it at this link.  The project is underway and will continue through most of 2022.
