Chestnut Street to Eastman Park

Project Overview

Chestnut Street to Eastman Park Drive Drainage Improvements Phase I

The project consisted of installing approximately 1,675 linear feet of 60″ RCP and 900 LF of 48” RCP with depths that ranged from 10 to 16 ft below asphalt surface in existing streets in Windsor. Connell value engineered the use of precast box base manholes to alleviate conflicts with existing utilities which would have required relocation and schedule delays.  One utility conflict was with a sanitary sewer that could not be moved, the final crossing design included a transition to a precast box culvert and bypass pumping the sewer during installation.  After storm installation, the project included 4300 SY of asphalt patching, one cast-in-place pond outlet structure, and one Cast in place inlet (added after contract).  In the upstream pond, the project included 21,000 CY of excavation and haul-off. During construction, it became apparent that the water utility system in construction did not have adequate Valving so the town hired Connell to insert valves in order to isolate the waterlines so that the storm drain could pass under them safely.
