Clinton Railroad Station – North Platform Improvements and Pedestrian Bridge

Clinton, Connecticut

Work includes relocating the existing shelter from the south side of the tracks, to the north side without disassembly. The structure, located on the south side of the tracks, was lifted with a 265T crane from the north side of the tracks, reaching over to relocate the shelter onto a new foundation on the north side. Once the existing structure was relocated, the existing foundation was expanded to accommodate two new elevator pits for new elevators. A new tower was erected on the south side to allow for the new pedestrian bridge to be connected for pedestrian access over the tracks, above the catenary lines. The north side consisted of a new platform with folding edge, 204’ long, a new tower with two elevators and the second connection point for the new pedestrian bridge. Extensive site work began with over 200 LF of PZ27 sheeting driven 20 feet into the ground, adjacent to active train tracks. Excavations for the new platform and tower were able to be performed once the sheeting was installed. Once the north tower steel erection was complete a 275T hydraulic crane was utilized to install the prefabricated, one piece bridge connecting the north and south towers, above the catenary lines. The exteriors of both towers were finished with natural field stone, brick and composite metal panels. The roofs are a metal standing seam, with copper gutter and downspout. The exterior walls are framed with a heavy gauge steel stud and finished inside with tongue and groove AZEK boards and AZEK trim. All ceilings are finished with ¾” tongue and groove boards. All roofs are sheathed with 5/4” tongue and groove boards. The north side of the project received a new porous paving parking lot, with retaining wall. Work on the south side of the existing parking lot included a complete milling and 2” overlay with S0.5 asphalt. During construction, the electrical service was upgraded to a new 800amp service, along with a natural gas backup generator and transfer switch. Four electric vehicle charging stations were added to accommodate the rising need for electric vehicle charging.

Stone Masonry Wall Rehabilitation U.S. Rt. 1

Groton/ Mystic, Connecticut

This project had a 93 calendar day timeline with stipulations that the northbound lane of Rt.1 could not be shut down until after September 30th, leaving a 28 day window to perform the majority of work on the project. Work on this project included clearing and grubbing for access to a deteriorated stone masonry wall in dire need of repair. Extensive work to repoint the mortar joints included mortar removal across the entire area and repointing of all mortar joints. Prior to the demolition of the existing road, a deteriorated lead coated rail had to be abated and removed. Once the northbound lane of Rt. 1 was shutdown, the old roadway was removed, which include both asphalt and concrete removal, along with contaminated soil remediation. A haunch was poured against the existing stone wall and a new concrete moment slab was poured over top of a new flowable fill base. Cold Liquid Elastomeric Membrane was applied on top of the new moment slab and three courses of asphalt ranging from S1 binder to S0.25 over the liquid membrane and then S0.5 as a wearing course. At the lower end of the project a new retaining wall was excavated and installed, along with new sidewalk and curb. The wall was topped with 256 LF of new bridge rail, which included 2 compound curves. The project was finished off with new landscaping and turf establishment.

State Street Rail Station

New Haven, Connecticut

The Work on this project included construction of a new pedestrian platform, a tower with elevator and a bridge connecting the street level to the upper floor of the tower. Work began with 7” and 9” piles driven up to 50’ in the ground to support the platform, tower and bridge foundations. The new 300’ platform, adjacent to the tracks included an electric snowmelt system integrated into the poured concrete deck. The two story tower housed the new elevator which carried passengers from street level to platform level. A new 24’ pedestrian bridge tied the tower to the street level and was installed as a one piece structure, pre-built offsite.
