ROS-23-21.20 Roadway Design Services – Ross County, Ohio

STONE was contracted to assist with the design of intersection improvements for this ODOT project located along US-23 at Crouse Chapel Road in Ross County as part of a task order for the ODOT District 9 General Engineering Services contract.  STONE’s professional services included preparing and submitting Stage 2, Stage 3, and Final Tracings for the project.

 

Project included a southbound offset left turn lane and concrete median in the intersection to provide better traffic flow and reduce traffic incidents. The project involved roadway widening to add a turn lane, storm sewer adjustments, and necessary traffic control devices. Due to the site conditions benching was used as part of the lane widening on northbound US 23 for slope stability. Road closure on Crouse Chapel Road was required for intersection improvements along with maintenance of traffic and a detour plan. STONE completed cross sections, plan and profiles, drainage calculations, detour plan, Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) plans, and cost summaries. Submittals were made on schedule and within budget.

“STONE is an instrumental part of our team on the Portsmouth By-Pass Project: the 16-mile new construction project, which is the single largest project in ODOT history. This project has come with more than its share of environmental challenges. STONE has delivered over 30 full environmental clearance reviews and reports we have requested as part of the project, handling them from start to finish in a very timely & cost effective manner. Furthermore, they’ve proven themselves as an extremely valuable resource when it comes to consulting on mitigation efforts, hazardous materials, and resolving various unknown environmental situations that the project has encountered.

 

From the top down STONE has proven they are committed to excellence and we look forward to working with them on many projects in the future.”
