Description
This was a project by Anna Gagne for the CRP Internship award competition, Spring 2006. Student projects on affordable housing, neighborhood (re)development, environmental preservation, transportation, and other topics were displayed in the Banvard Gallery at the Knowlton School of Architecture on May 29 through June 9, 2006. "Athens and Meigs were two of the Southeastern Ohio Counties declared disaster areas by President Bush in early 2005, after storms caused flooding and landslide damage, destroying primary routes in the area. The roadway slips, washouts, and dropped pavement requiring the closure of State Route 144 and State Route 124 were the main reasons Governor Taft declared a State of Emergency for these counties. Restoring the communities' transportation system became the top priority of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 10 office. ... I was responsible for guilding the planning process, directing the environmental studies, and preparing the project's extensive documentation." - Anna Gagne This project won the grand prize at the competition. This work is a part of the online collections of the Knowlton School of Architecture Student Archives, The Ohio State University. It is part of an effort to make accessible student work ranging from the first student that graduated from the program in 1903 to the present.
