Quality of Life
The project will erect signage that directs travelers to the businesses and attractions in Beavercreek Township. Currently, the business district in the Township has no wayfinding signage. Businesses will enjoy increased visibility to road traffic along US35. The signage will also direct visitors and residents to the many public parks and bike paths throughout the Township.

The US35 (Orchard/Factory) Superstreet project, on which the signs will be mainly located, received $250,000 each from Beavercreek Township and the City of Beavercreek, County Commissioners gave $1 million, ODOT District 8 gave $250,000.

Beavercreek Township's commercial core is located along US35. The existing traffic patterns include several stop lights along the "main drag" of businesses, which give travelers an opportunity to turn into said businesses. The stop lights can also induce travelers to stop and look around at potential stores to visit. However, the Township has recently begun construction of the US35 (Orchard/Factory) Superstreet Project. This roadway improvement is designed to improve safety and reduce traffic stoppages during peak hours. However, it also has the unintended effect of reducing visibility of businesses in the Township's commercial core. The Township would like to provide wayfinding signage to improve our local businesses' visibility, especially to pass-through traffic along US35.
In addition to the benefits to local businesses, the signage will benefit residents and travelers by inviting them to experience the many parks, bike paths, and other attractions in the Township. The Township is luck to have several reserves, public parks, and even a National Scenic River within our boundary. There are miles of bike path that connect residents all over Greene County. The Township believes that these resources should be advertised and promoted, to maximize the enjoyment of visitors and residents alike.
