KEM designed the Middle Bellville Road Improvements for the City of Mansfield. This project included significant safety upgrades such as sight distance improvements, intersection improvements, signal upgrades, and a modern roundabout at Straub Rd.
KEM provided engineering design, construction administration and project inspection services for the 1.5-mile reconstruction of Harrington Memorial Road, leading to the Mansfield-Lahm Airport. This local project included funds from the Ohio Public Works Commission, the Ohio Air National Guard, and the City of Mansfield.
KEM completed highway design and right of way acquisition services for this 1.5 mile urban roadway improvement in the City of Lorain under the ODOT traditional review process and provided construction administration and inspection services under the LPA process.
KEM provided construction management and inspection services for the construction of 1.9 miles of new four lane concrete roadway on the west side of Elyria. This Local Let Project included over 55,000 square yards of nine inch reinforced concrete pavement, 454 feet of 8'x4' reinforced concrete box culvert, three signalized intersections, and the relocation of a bike trail.
KEM took an "out-of-the-box" approach to this work due to the high cost associated with treating so few households. Mutiple treatment alternatives were considered along with a cost analysis for each, with special attention paid to innovative designs that would ultimately help secure additional grant funding. The goal of the project was simple; construct a sanitary collection/treatment system, at an affordable user cost.
A significant part of KEM's role for this project was financial planning including the preparation of cost estimates and applications used to secure OPWC funding and the development of assessment methodology to secure gap funding. The work included the design of upgrades for an existing storm sewer system serving approximately 270 homes in Mifflin Township, Richland County, Ohio.
