Ex-trustees fighting for Fox interchange

        LIBERTY TWP. - Trustees on Monday appointed two residents, both former township trustees, to lead the effort for a proposed interchange for the Michael A. Fox Highway east of Interstate 75.

        Former trustees Greg Amend and Bob Faxon - who is Liberty Township's representative on the Butler County Transportation Improvement District - will help county and TID leaders try to get the interchange completed.

        “It's the best thing for Liberty and West Chester,” Mr. Amend said of the interchange. “We are going to drown in traffic if we don't open that interchange up.”

        It would be extended east about a quarter mile to an extended Cox Road, which would be widened to four lanes and run from where it now ends at Hamilton-Mason Road to Kyles Station Road.

        County leaders were told last week the interchange won't receive ODOT support until at least next year because ODOT is holding off on supporting new interchanges along or near I-75 between Interstate 275 and Interstate 675 in suburban Dayton until a regional study is complete early next year.

        But Gordon Proctor, director of the Ohio Department of Transportation, did pledge to help the county move the project along, completing required studies and clearing red tape.
