LJB is pleased to work with many municipal and county government clients who value problem solving, creative ideas, and cost-effective solutions. The American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) TRIKO Valley Section in Southwest Ohio recently honored one of our clients—the City of Fairfield—with the 2012 Donald C. Schramm Transportation Improvement Award.
The selection committee determined that the State Route 4 Bypass Widening and Quadrant Roadway Intersection (QRI) best demonstrated a high degree of uniqueness, ingenuity and value in the greater than $3 million construction costs category.
Considering that this was the first QRI implemented in the country, the high degree of uniqueness and ingenuity was clear. Residents and businesses in Butler County have already experienced improved access to the major north-south corridor in the area, relief from traffic congestion on local roads, and improved safety on the Bypass which handles traffic of 40,000 vehicles per day.
This impressive project also widened the Bypass from two lanes to four lanes; widened the intersection of the Bypass and Port Union Road with additional thru lanes and constructed an additional bridge over the CSX railroad.
LJB is honored to be part of this award-winning project.
