The South Hamilton Crossing (SHX) project connects Grand Boulevard with University Boulevard by replacing an at-grade railroad crossing with an overpass and half-mile roadway extension. The bridge offers residents and visitors uninterrupted flow across the railroad tracks, reducing congestion caused by the significant daily train traffic. Additionally, the overpass improves access to Miami University Hamilton Campus, Vora Technology Park, and 60 acres of vacant, development ready land at University Commerce Park. In 2018, the overpass was renamed Jim Blount South Hamilton Crossing in honor of Jim Blount, a famous local historian and longtime advocate for the project.
