Road projects to benefit UC Clermont

Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger has announced that two road projects to benefit the University of Cincinnati Clermont will be going forward this year.

The county will be constructing an alternate entrance to U.C. Clermont from Old state Route 74 and will be resurfacing James Sauls Sr. Drive to provide access to the new classrooms currently being remodeled at the Batavia Ford Plant.

Bids for the extension of Clermont College Drive to Old 74 were opened Thursday, April 8. While estimates for the project were set at $1 million, the lowest bid was Broshear Contractors with a bid of $703,262. Manger said Broshear will begin as soon as contracts are finalized and the road could be completed as early as September.
