The City of Blue Ash Public Works Department is the winner of a Donald C. Schramm Transportation Improvement Award for the roundabout project at Glendale-Milford Road and Lake Forest Drive near Summit Park.

This award recognizes completed transportation projects that truly improve efficiency, safety, and quality of life, according to the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE) website.

“We are honored to be recognized for this project,” said Blue Ash Public Works Director Gordon M. Perry, P.E. “The City of Blue Ash is very appreciative for the efforts of our team which included Blue Ash Project Coordinator Ryan Noland, Blue Ash Engineering Technician Will Davis, American Structurepoint, Ford Development, and Al Neyer.”

Only two such awards are given each year. They are named for the late Donald C. Schramm, P.E.-P.S. He was a leader in the transportation engineering field and in Hamilton County government. He served as the Hamilton County Engineer in the Cincinnati area from 1973 to 1992. Schramm and his administration made every attempt to hasten the completion of the Ronald Reagan Cross County Highway Project through the very complex federal aid development process.

Due to the pandemic, the award was mailed to the City.
