Design Awards Highlight Innovative Transportation Projects

LJB is pleased to work with many municipal and county government clients who value problem solving, creative ideas, and cost-effective solutions. The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) in Ohio recently honored three of our clients with impressive transportation projects that met their Honor Award criteria—demonstrating a high degree of uniqueness, ingenuity and value.

LJB is honored to be named with these clients and projects, which are improving the lives of citizens in these communities.

Adams Street Bridge Replacement – Troy, Ohio (Miami County Engineer’s Office)

AdamsBridgeAwardFor this bridge replacement project, the new 500-foot-long, six-span continuous prestressed concrete I-beam bridge retains the historic context of the structure. The bridge includes overlooks on both sides so pedestrians can safely enjoy the view of downtown Troy. Dedicated bicycle and pedestrian lanes also connect with existing city-wide recreational trails on either side of the bridge.

State Route 4 Bypass Widening – Fairfield, Ohio (City of Fairfield)

SR4BypassAwardThe project widens the intersection of the Bypass and Port Union Road, constructs an additional bridge over the CSX railroad, and modifies the intersection with a new Quadrant Roadway Intersection (QRI) – the first in the United States. Residents and businesses in Butler County benefit from improved access to the major north-south corridor in the area, relief from traffic congestion on local roads, and improved safety in the area.

U.S. Route 40 (North Street) Realignment – Springfield, Ohio (City of Springfield)

CLA-40-Aerial_0552This project relocated and reconstructed a stretch of three-lane, one-way roadway to safely and efficiently redirect traffic to an area hospital with minimal disruptions to the public. All aspects of this project were designed with the medical center in mind: entry configuration, storm sewer coordination and maintenance of traffic.
