ENR New England: Best Small Project - Main Street Bridge Replacement
ENR New England
November 21, 2017

Main Street Bridge Replacement
Chester, Conn. 

Owner: Connecticut Dept. of Transportation, District 2 Construction
Lead Designer: TranSystems
General Contractor: Arborio Construction
Civil/Structural Engineer: TranSystems
Prime Consultant, Hydraulic Engineer and Permitting: Fuss & O’Neill

The team preserved historic elements of a 22-ft-long, 60-ft-wide  Main Street bridge, built in 1921, and its surroundings, while it minimized shutting down portions of the center of Chester, Conn. The $4.6-million Main Street Bridge project had to contend with sidewalks, on-street parking, shops and restaurants within the project’s limits. Bridge closings were limited to January 2016 to May 2016 to limit the potential economic impact on neighboring businesses.

The bridge abuts buildings that date back to the early 1900s in three of its four quadrants. Bridge abutments and wing walls serve as both channel walls and foundation walls to the adjacent buildings. The bridge spans water mains, trolley tracks, sewer lines, water lines and stormwater drainage.

Replacement of these substructures was required due their deteriorated conditions. TranSystems worked with the Connecticut Dept. of Transportation to identify time frames when buildings would be inaccessible to occupants.
