MSE walls going up for landmark Ohio highway project /title></p> <h2 class="kicker">Geogrids cited for roads, bridges to improve safety and reduce road congestion</h2> <p><a href="http://www.tensarcorp.com/" target="_blank">Tensar International</a> announced in an April 16 press release that construction has commenced on one of the largest highway projects in Ohio—including $3 million to construct MSE (mechanically stabilized earth) retaining walls.</p><div class="inline-ad inline-ad--left"><div class="ad-medium-rectangle-container"> <div id='acm-ad-tag-Geosynthetics_medium_rectangle1' style='width:100%; height:auto; text-align:center'> <script type='text/javascript'> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('acm-ad-tag-Geosynthetics_medium_rectangle1'); }); </script> </div> </div></div> <p>When complete, 30 precast panel retaining walls will be built, totaling more than 200,000 square feet, “making it one of the largest projects in Tensar’s uniaxial geogrid product line history,” the release stated.</p> <p>The full scope of the Ohio highway project is to construct 22 new bridges, improve safety, reduce road congestion, and connect neighborhoods in Columbus, Ohio. A new travel lane will also be added on Interstate 670 to help reduce weaving across traffic lanes to exits. (Interstate 670 runs through downtown Columbus, connecting I-70 west of downtown with I-270 and U.S. 62 near the eastern suburb of Gahanna.)</p> <p>The release noted that the first phase of the <a href="http://www.dot.state.oh.us/projects/71670/pages/ProjectOverview.aspx" target="_blank">Columbus Crossroads</a> project is slated for completion in 2014. <a href="http://www.kokosing.biz/default.aspx" target="_blank">Kokosing Construction</a> is the contractor for the project.</p> <h4><strong>Source:</strong> <a href="http://www.tensarcorp.com/" target="_blank">Tensar International Corp.</a></h4> </div> </div> </div> <div> <h3>More News:</h3> <p><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/?p=10247">HUESKER introduces ecoLine geogrids</a></p> <p><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/?p=9920">Tenax presents GRAVEL LOCK, a composite for retaining gravel</a></p> <p><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/?p=9687">Modeling demonstrates benefit of geogrid-reinforced aggregate base</a></p> <p><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/?p=9505">GMA/IGS-NA to present webinar on geosynthetic-stabilized roads</a></p> <p><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/?p=9438">Two Fleischmann amendments related to geosynthetics included in final FAA reauthorization</a></p> </div> <footer> <nav class="navigation"> <div class="nav-prev"><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/2012/04/18/leister-offers-new-services-ach-new-product/" rel="prev"><i class="fa fa-chevron-left"></i><span class="post-name"> Previous</span></a></div> <div class="nav-next"><a href="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/2012/04/20/gma-presents-ae%cb%9c-friendsae-awards/" rel="next"><span class="post-name">Next </span><i class="fa fa-chevron-right"></i></a></div> </nav> </footer> <section id="comments" class="comments"> <div id="respond" class="comment-respond"> <h3 id="reply-title" class="comment-reply-title">Leave a Reply <small><a rel="nofollow" id="cancel-comment-reply-link" href="/2012/04/19/mse-walls-going-up-for-landmark-ohio-highway-project/#respond" style="display:none;">Cancel reply</a></small></h3><form action="https://geosyntheticsmagazine.com/wp-comments-post.php?wpe-comment-post=ifaidedicated" method="post" id="commentform" class="comment-form" novalidate><p class="comment-notes"><span id="email-notes">Your email address will not be published.</span> Required fields are marked <span class="required">*</span></p><p class="comment-form-comment"><label for="comment">Comment</label> <textarea id="comment" name="comment" cols="45" rows="8" maxlength="65525" required="required"></textarea></p><p class="small"><i>Comments are moderated and will show up after being approved.</i></p><p class="comment-form-author"><label for="author">Name <span class="required">*</span></label> <input id="author" name="author" type="text" value="" size="30" maxlength="245" required='required' /></p> <p class="comment-form-email"><label for="email">Email <span class="required">*</span></label> <input id="email" name="email" type="email" value="" size="30" maxlength="100" aria-describedby="email-notes" required='required' /></p> <p class="comment-form-url"><label for="url">Website</label> <input id="url" name="url" type="url" value="" size="30" maxlength="200" /></p> <p class="comment-form-cookies-consent"><input id="wp-comment-cookies-consent" name="wp-comment-cookies-consent" type="checkbox" value="yes" /> <label for="wp-comment-cookies-consent">Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.</label></p> <p class="form-submit"><input name="submit" type="submit" id="submit" class="submit" value="Post Comment" /> <input type='hidden' name='comment_post_ID' value='1171' id='comment_post_ID' /> <input type='hidden' name='comment_parent' id='comment_parent' value='0' /> </p><p style="display: none;"><input type="hidden" id="akismet_comment_nonce" name="akismet_comment_nonce" value="fcd00a4c94" /></p><p style="display: none;"><input type="hidden" id="ak_js" name="ak_js" value="229"/></p></form> </div><!-- #respond --> </section> </article> </div> </main> <aside class="sidebar" role="complementary"> <!-- Sidebar: ifai/templates/sidebar --> <section class="widget acm_ad_zones-4 acm_ad_zones"> <div id='acm-ad-tag-Geosynthetics_wide_skyscraper1' style='width:100%; height:auto; text-align:center'> <script type='text/javascript'> googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('acm-ad-tag-Geosynthetics_wide_skyscraper1'); }); </script> </div> </section> </aside> </div> </div> <!-- Cookies alert: ifai/templates/alert-cookies --> <div id="ifaiCookiesNotification" class="alert alert-cookies alert-dismissible hidden"> <div class="container"> <div class="alert-cookies__row"> <div class="alert-cookies__col alert-cookies__message"> By continuing to use this site, you agree to the use of cookies.
