"Reed Hartman Highway connects commuters to work"

Reed Hartman runs from just past Ronald Reagan Hwy. in Blue Ash to Fields Ertel in Sharonville, with the Blue Ash section ending before you reach Kemper Road and I-275. Most of Reed Hartman is a wide expanse of multiple lanes designed to quickly filter commuters into the large office complexes and businesses off to the sides. Some of the major employers situated off of Reed Hartman are Procter & Gamble, Toyota, and Ethicon Endo-Surgery. Located off of Reed Hartman is the large complex for Cincinnati Eye Institute. There are numerous office buildings situated on adjacent access roads. Because of the large numbers of businesses along Reed Hartman, there are around 10 different hotels/motels along this route. There are also many restaurants, from fast food chains, to casual dining, and local eateries, as well as a variety of other businesses.

The stretch of Reed Hartman that runs between Cooper and Plainfield Road (where Reed Hartman and Plainfield merge) is the only stretch with any residential neighborhoods, the rest is strictly commercial, until you get to the one apartment complex right before Kemper Road.

"Good road for a commuter"

I drive on Reed Hartman every day to get to work. It's a pretty busy highway, but it rarely gets backed up with accidents or traffic. The only times I've seen the traffic are right at 5:00 on the weekdays and during the winter if there's even a few inches of snow on the ground.

Reed Hartman goes through Blue Ash, a nice and fairly wealthy community in Cincinnati. There are actually incentives for living in Blue Ash, because people mostly just work there instead of living there. By day, there are thousands of people driving around, whether they're going to work, to lunch, or home. At night, people clear out like they're avoiding the plague, even though there's actually a fair amount of things to do. It seems like Blue Ash always has some kind of town festival going.

There are several restaurants on or near Reed Hartman, including an Arby's, Skyline, Taco Bell/Pizza Hut Express, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebee's, Wendy's, and Panera Bread. When you drive through, you'll mostly see big office buildings. It's very clean, other than the birds that have adopted the area by my office as their homeland. I happen to like the birds, though, so I don't mind.

This is a good highway to drive on as a commuter. It's rarely frustrating at all.
