Engineer’s Office completes many road and bridge projects

BATAVIA, OH (July 13, 2022) — Despite challenges related to the pandemic and supply chain issues, the Clermont County Engineer’s Office replaced four bridges and 91 culverts in 2021. The office also focused attention on preventative maintenance and repairs, Engineer Jeremy Evans said in an update to the Board of County Commissioners today.

The office completed its largest single paving project in terms of mileage (35 miles) and dollars ($3.45 million).

Thanks in large part to grants funds from the Ohio Public Works Commission, Clermont County also caught up in 2021 on several landslide projects, completing eight repairs at a cost of more than $1 million.

Looking ahead, 2022 is shaping up to be another productive year, Evans said. He thanked the Commissioners for contributing $4 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to the road improvement program. This will allow the office to nearly triple resurfacing and repair of roads in 2022.
