ODOT road work UPDATE: US 52

  U.S. 52 Culvert Work Scheduled

Hamilton County (Tuesday, May 17, 2011)
A project to replace a culvert located on U.S. 52
near Asbury Road in Anderson Twp. is scheduled to begin in July, the Ohio Department of Transportation announced

This culvert carries
an unnamed tributary to the Ohio
River under U.S. 52 and a private driveway. As part of the proposed
project, the northern culvert section will be replaced with a 213-foot-long,
84-inch diameter corrugated metal pipe culvert. The southern culvert section
will be rehabilitated using polyurethane foam injection and a linear pipe, slid
into the existing culvert. In addition, the existing retaining wall which is
approximately 40 feet in length and located near the structure inlet, will be
rehabilitated, and 37 feet of rock channel protection will be placed at the
structure outlet. Vegetation near the outlet will be removed in order to provide
construction access for the contractor.

The project area is adjacent to the Ohio
River, and the terrain is hilly, with scattered residential and commercial
properties in the vicinity of the structures. U.S. 52 in this location is
functionally classified as an “urban principal arterial.” The current average
daily traffic count (2013) in this location is 18,600 vehicles per day; 24,700
vehicles per day for design year 2033. The design and legal speeds in this area
are 60 mph and 55 mph, respectively.

All proposed work will take place within
the existing right of way of U.S 52 and within existing channel easements. The
proposed project is currently scheduled for an award date of July 7, 2011, with construction to begin shortly
