Allen Street, New Britain, CT
Reconstruction of Allen Street, New Britain, CT
Allen Street was subject to up to a foot of annual flooding due to inadequate storm sewer capacity, forcing local road closures and causing flooding on private properties.
To alleviate these problems, the design will include approximately 2,500’ of storm sewer and 2,000’ of sanitary sewer improvements in order to provide increased capacity and prevent surcharging of the existing system.
This project involves the complete reconstruction of 3,500 lf of roadway, including geometric improvements to meet current design standards and improve drainage.
Additionally, the installation of granite curbing, new concrete sidewalks, and aprons on both sides of the street and an effective pavement structures will be implemented.
The remaining 2,500 lf of the project includes milling and overlay with partial full-depth reconstruction, brick pavers, street trees, granite curbing, and new concrete driveway aprons and sidewalks.
New traffic signals will be installed at two primary intersections. Close coordination with CT DOT was required as a portion of the project is located on Route 175. This project was funded through LOTCIP.
Project Completion: 2013 / Project Cost: $5,000,000
