Adjusted at the Fields-Ertel/Mason- Montgomery Intersection
We've highlighted two primary benefits of the new loop ramp -- for traffic driving north on Mason-Montgomery Road, you can now bypass the primary intersection and continue heading north on Mason-Montgomery avoiding several traffic signals. This also helps traffic using the "traditional" exit, because there are now fewer cars cycling through that signal.
Some of you have noted that the signals however are still timed to support the heavier flow of traffic. First, please keep your feedback coming -- we appreciate hearing from all of you on how your drive through the area is going. Second, we wanted to make you all aware that we've been in communication with our partners at the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) about the signal timing, and they've said that they are closely monitoring traffic patterns through the interchange area. As the amount of drivers using the new ramp increases daily, and with less people going north through the intersection, it will eventually allow for longer green lights for those traveling on Fields-Ertel Road.
And speaking of Fields-Ertel Road, ODOT plans to widen and resurface a portion of Fields-Ertel next year.

- Remarkable job by all and I think the new loop will absolutely relieve the congestion around this area.
