HIG-73/CR 5-14.96/14.29 Improvement - Prospect United Methodist Church
Highland County, OH
The Highland County Engineer was seeking to correct existing horizontal and vertical deficiencies, improve drainage, and widen County Road (CR 5). EMH&T conducted a Phase II history/architecture study of the Prospect United Methodist Church which sits on a crucial intersection along CR 5. EMH&T conducted extensive research and an exhaustive comparison to 75 other churches in southern Highland County. By demonstrating the church was a very rare variety of a cross gable or “T” plan church the County Engineer was able to minimize impacts to the church property in the scheduled roadway design.
