Ohio's New $16.9 Million Transportation Hub to Break Ground this Month

Jan. 9, 2024
It is scheduled to be operational by 2025

A $16.9 million transit project is set to break ground later this month in Oxford, Ohio.

The multimodel station at Chestnut Fields has been worked on for years by the Butler County Regional Transit Authority, Miami University, and the city of Oxford.

“This is a true multimodal project for the city of Oxford that will include bus and rail and car and bikes, and so it’s really all connected,” said Oxford Assistant City Manager Jessica Greene.

The multimodel station, known as the Chestnut Street Multimodal Station, will serve as a hub for passenger connections to Butler County RTA services and regional buses. It is scheduled to be operational by 2025.

“This is a project more than 10 years in the making, so seeing everyone’s hard work come to fruition is tremendously exciting,” said Matthew Dutkevicz, executive director of Butler County RTA. “The transit hub will fulfill transit needs throughout Butler County and positively affect countless lives, day in and day out. We’re deeply proud of the development and can’t wait for the beautiful space to take shape and transform the community we proudly serve.”

It will take approximately 18 months to complete.

The transportation center has received $1.5 million in funding from Miami University and $2.4 million from Butler County RTA. Additionally, Butler County RTA and Miami University have partnered to raise more than $5 million to secure the project.
