Oakhill Road: A True “Complete Street”

       Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel held a ribbon cutting ceremony on July 21, 2011 to officially re-open Virginia St./Oak Hill Rd. between Hwy 41 and Pigeon Creek.  J.H. Rudolph was involved in the complete reconstruction of the roadway, including re-paving, adding dedicated bike lanes, adding curbs and gutters, adding and/or repairing sidewalks and ADA-compliant curb ramps, as well as improving drainage.  Also connected to METS bus routes, the new Oak Hill Rd. is a “complete street” in that it’s designed to accommodate all modes of transportation.  
       During the ribbon cutting ceremony Mayor Weinzapfel noted, “Residents can now safely utilize Oak Hill Road by car, bus, wheelchair or scooter, bicycle or on foot.  This is one of the first truly complete streets in the City of Evansville or surrounding community.”
       Representatives from J.H. Rudolph & Co., Inc., the City Engineer’s and Mayor’s Offices, American Structurepoint, Inc. and the Evansville Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) were invited to participate in the ceremony.  Casey Lasher, Project Manager, represented J.H. Rudolph by taking part in the actual ribbon cutting.
