HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) -- Traffic engineers and other officials plan to discuss improvements for motorists in an increasingly busy Interstate 75 interchange in southwest Ohio.

West Chester township officials have invited the Butler County Engineer's Office to talk about improvements to alleviate traffic at the Union Centre Boulevard interchange, including possible ramp modifications. A meeting is scheduled for Tuesday.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports the Butler County Engineer's Office traffic counts show that traffic along Union Center Boulevard from Muhlhauser Road to Interstate 75 has increased from 26,180 cars per day in 2004 to about 49,000 in 2012.

A spokesman with the engineer's office says traffic counts for this year haven't been recorded.

Officials say the county is spending about $41,560 on a preliminary engineering study for Union Centre.
