Local Government

The associates at ADR are aware of the changing goals within society and the effects on your local development. We understand the workings of government operations, the permitting process, public opinion and involvement, bidding, City Council and, community approval – and that is just the start. We are here to walk through ALL the details with you step by step.


The Gallia County Engineer retained the services of ADR for the design of stabilization measures for the Gravel Hill Road Bridge Replacement. This project involved replacing the existing single span bridge with a new structure that would help reduce flood impact. For this project we performed the field survey, prepared construction and right-of-way plans, and completed property acquisition and environmental clearance documentation.


Pursuant to the ADA Accessibility Requirements, the City of Columbus hired ADR for the 3-Stage, 4 year project, upgrading Curb Ramp and Sidewalk systems, including crossing control and signalization. The project scope involved several miles of urban streets, dozens of major intersections, and hundreds of ramps. Environmental and Right-of-Way with Construction Easements were other challenges on this project with additional review by the Ohio Department of Transportation

ADR worked closely with the City of Newark to design two below ground water booster pump stations, 16″ water main extensions, and the SCADA system to connect all these units to work seamlessly. Control stations were designed into the Cities Water Treatment Plant and City Water Department, and telemetry installed at all booster stations as well as the water tower that services these areas.


Providing Municipal engineering services is just one of the many things we do. ADR works directly with the Village of Ostrander in Delaware County, Ohio on code review and implementation and development and planning. We also participate in the Village Council and Planning and Zoning Commission meetings, providing inspection services and assistance in finding funding and grants for proposed projects.

ADR & Associates recently completed design and bidding for a new wastewater collection and treatment system for the Village of Hanover, in Licking County, Ohio.
