State Route 315 Slope Stabilization Project
* Project Scope: This project will stabilize the slope that supports State Route 315 between Jewett Road and the Powell city limits. The slope stabilization is needed to maintain SR 315 and prevent further erosion generated by the Olentangy River. Stabilizing the slope includes building a ‘plug pile’ wall. This type of wall does not require a causeway and uses some of the existing vegetation on the bank. The ‘plug pile’ wall disturbs less of the natural environment, which will result in a reduction of run-off into the river.
* Project Completion: October 2017
* Cost: $3.6 Million
