The State of Ohio has reached an agreement to purchase Longworth Hall and plans to use a portion of the building for BSBC project team office space.  
As part of the project, approximately 200 feet will be carefully removed from the far eastern end of the building to make way for construction of approaches to the new companion bridge.
Importantly, the bulk of the 1,160-foot building will remain completely untouched. Construction workers will close the opened wall using bricks salvaged from the partial removal, preserving Longworth Hall's historic character.
Areas of Longworth Hall not impacted by the construction necessary to accommodate the approaches to the new companion bridge will continue to function and operate as they do currently. No impacts to the long-term operations of the building are expected.
Originally built as a freight terminal for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1904, Longworth Hall is known as the sister building to Camden Yards in Baltimore. Nicholas Longworth, patriarch of Cincinnati's business, political and philanthropic family, originally owned the land.
Learn more about the professionals who make up the BSBC Project's bi-state management team. Visit the website to read profiles on each of the eight people who lead the management team. To get you started, here are short video intros for Stacee Hans and Tommy Arnold, project managers for KYTC and ODOT, respectively.
Stacee Hans is the KYTC project manager for the BSBC Project, where she brings the leadership and team-building skills she refined on the basketball court in college to the world of transportation and project management via an environmental career.
"It's almost surreal to be part of what I consider to be one of the most transformative projects for not only Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati but our entire region. It's amazing and sometimes there are not even words to describe it."
Tommy Arnold is the ODOT project manager for the BSBC project. His background includes serving as project manager for the Interstate 71-Martin Luther King Jr. Drive interchange, the first two-step, low-bid design-build project ever constructed in Ohio.
“This is a huge opportunity for our region, and what we're looking to do is spread the word about the construction and transportation industry. It is an excellent career to get into and there are more opportunities every day."
