BCEO WINS AWARDS FOR TWO PROJECTS
Cincinnati Dayton Road Improvement
Kyles Station Road Relocation

The Butler County Engineer's Office has received awards for two roadway improvement projects completed last year. The Cincinnati Dayton Road widening in West Chester Township and the Kyles Station Road relocation at Ohio Route 4 were each recognized by Flexible Pavements of Ohio in the category of Best Local Road or Street - Major Rehabilitation for excellence in paving.

Superior workmanship, smoothness, and ride quality are taken into consideration when identifying projects that qualify for the awards. "We're proud to receive these awards and believe they reflect the dedication to quality and public service by our BCEO team," said Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens. "Everyone from our Construction Department to the project contractors should be congratulated."

Each year at its annual meeting, Flexible Pavements of Ohio recognizes projects that demonstrate exceptional quality in construction and awards them the Quality Seal. Flexible Pavements is an association for the development, improvement, and advancement of quality asphalt pavement construction.

BCEO Construction Deputy Dennis Krall noted that paving may appear to be a simple process but "there is indeed an art to it. And we are fortunate to have on our staff people who understand this." One of those would be Kelly Nuxhall, an 18-year BCEO veteran who specializes in the management of all County and township resurfacing, including the paving portions of these two projects.

Krall also pointed out the key role of the contractors. "They really do a good job for us," he said. "Our contractors care about the quality of work in Butler County and are willing to go the extra mile."

The contractor for the Cincinnati Dayton Road widening was the John R. Jurgensen Company of Cincinnati. This $2.1 million project spanned approximately two miles from Crescentville Road to West Chester Road.

Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. of Cincinnati was the contractor for the Kyles Station Road project, which involved relocating a portion of the roadway and its intersection with Route 4 about a half mile to the northeast of its old location. Barrett constructed a new 11-inch thick, deep strength asphalt pavement on a gentle curve. The project eliminated a dangerous intersection at Route 4 and created a new, safer intersection with signals and improved sight distance.
