ASC was contracted by HDR Engineering, Inc. to update the ecological documentation for Construction Phase 1 of the Preferred Alternative of the Portsmouth Bypass Project (SCI-823-0.00) in Scioto County, Ohio (PID 19415). Due to the time elapsed from the initial ecological survey, the original surveys were outdated and in need of reevaluation.
In addition to the ecological reevaluation, ASC was contracted to update the existing Stream Mitigation Opportunities Inventory Report (SMOIR), update the existing threatened and endangered species surveys, and complete the waterway permits for the project.
ASC Group, Inc., under contract with Jacobs Engineering Group conducted cultural resources, ecological, and environmental surveys, and NEPA documentation for the HAM-Cleves Warsaw Road bridge replacement project in Hamilton County, Ohio.
The project included replacement of the 1923 Camelback through truss bridge over Muddy Creek. The new bridge is a three-span structure in place of the present one-span bridge and will require piers and new abutments.
Under contract with Earthtech/AECOM, ASC Group Inc., completed cultural and environmental resources surveys for the I-70 Added Travel Lanes project in portions of Marion and Hancock counties, Indiana. Cultural resources surveys within the project areas included records checks, visual inspection, photography, shovel probes, and soil cores.
One archaeological site was recorded. It is recommended not eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and no additional archaeological work was recommended.
The Veirs Mill Road study area is located in the northern portion of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, in Montgomery County, Maryland between Rockville and Wheaton-Glenmont. The study area is located in the south-central portion of Montgomery County. The entire Study Area is designated as a Priority Funding Area which directs Maryland State expenditures on economic growth and development.
Land use within the project area is predominantly medium-density residential with some commercial areas. The study area boundary comprises the area where potential exists for direct and indirect physical or operational changes associated with the project.
The project consists of the proposed replacement of the Crum Creek Viaduct over Crum Creek in Swarthmore Borough and Nether Providence Township, Delaware County. The existing viaduct is approximately 900 feet long, with seventeen spans, approximately 100 feet high, and was constructed in ca. 1897.
It is currently used by SEPTA’s Media/Elwyn Line commuter railroad line. Because of the length and height of the viaduct and the fact that it carries an active rail line, the proposed project will involve extensive preparation time and will necessitate several access points and staging areas for large materials and equipment.
