The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will join forces with Cincinnati Museum Center to highlight the planning and work that their organization contributed to the design and construction of Smale Riverfront Park.
Mr. Schueler is currently the Chief of the Plan Formulation Section in the Louisville District, and has served as a Project Manager for several civil works projects, including the Ohio Riverfront project here in Cincinnati. Explore the why and how of the Corps of Engineers involvement with the project, the partnership between the Corps of Engineers and the Cincinnati Park Board, and a look at the steps that were taken throughout the construction process. From weather to site access, he will discuss the challenges faced during construction before the park could become a key component to the city’s efforts to revitalize the downtown waterfront area.
