Burgess & Niple (B&N) developed construction and right-of-way plans for a 3.9-km extension of four-lane divided US Route 68. This limited-access highway improvement is one of six projects selected by the Ohio Department of Transportation for its Design-Build Pilot Program. B&N served as the design consultant for Trumbull Corporation, the project contractor.
Design work included roadway geometrics; open and closed drainage systems; nine culverts, two twin bridges, and a single highway bridge; an at-grade signalized intersection; traffic control and traffic maintenance plans; MSE retaining walls; and details for pavements to traffic-control upgrade at the existing county line road interchange.
