Project Details

As a subconsultant to L.R. Kimball, Keller Engineers provided complete survey services for 11 miles of new, limited-access, four lane highway and two interchanges along US 219 in Somerset County. Construction began at the northern terminus of the Meyersdale Bypass to the southern end of the existing US 219 in Somerset, PA. The new interchanges are located at the northern end of the Meyersdale Bypass, and at Mud Pike Road which provides access to Berlin and Rockwood.


For over 20 years I have had the privilege of working with Keller Engineers and their staff of surveyors, and civil and structural engineers on over $150 million worth of work. During these project relationships and partnering opportunities, my architectural teams have received nothing but premium professional services and courtesy towards my own staff, clients and prospective clients with stellar attention given to building and site details, client responsiveness and peer respect. I look forward to many more teaming opportunities and urge any other architectural firms, municipalities or clients who have not worked with Keller Engineers to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised! Richard L. Karcher, AIA, NCARB
