Rohr Road Widening
EMH&T was hired to perform survey, preliminary engineering, and detailed design for the widening of Rohr Road in conjunction with the construction of the Groveport 1 industrial site located in Groveport, Ohio. This roadway improvement was vital to provide suitable conditions to accommodate the high volume of truck traffic in this industrial district. Our team designed 1,650 feet of roadway widening to incorporate eastbound and westbound left-turn lanes at the intersection of Pontius Road. Widening of the road was performed strictly on the canal side of the road where an existing wide shoulder was available, thereby minimizing roadside grading and construction cost. A two-phase maintenance of traffic plan was prepared to maintain two-way traffic along Rohr Road and a fully functional intersection at Pontius Road. Eliminating detours was critical to the success of the project.
