Portsmouth Bypass Tour
Engineering Teacher, Craig Tackett, and his Engineering students of
Valley High School were able to tour the new Portsmouth Bypass (SR 823).
These students toured the highway construction, parts of the road that are
already paved, and some of the Engineer's Office. This opportunity allowed
them to see real world applications of engineering topics that are discussed
in class. Along with this, they now have the experience to say they have been
to one of the largest road projects in Ohio history before it was open!
