Godfrey Road Bridge
Replacement of the Godfrey Road Bridge, Weston, CT
Cardinal Engineering provided complete engineering services for this project, which included design, contract administration, and resident engineering services.
This project consisted of the replacement of the existing Godfrey Road Bridge with a new triple cell 8’x6’ precast concrete box culvert. The existing bridge had a deteriorated substructure, was hydraulically inadequate, and was located within a FEMA floodway. The replacement bridge was designed to pass the 100-year storm without overtopping and will meet FEMA criteria. A low flow channel was provided for fish passage and boulders were placed in the river to enhance fish habitat.
Cardinal obtained the following environmental permits: Army Corps of Engineers CAT II, Weston Inland Wetland Commission, CTDEEP Fisheries Division concurrence, CTDEEP 401 Water Quality Certification, and Weston Planning and Zoning Commission.
The project required coordination with utility companies for the relocation of an existing gas main and overhead power and telephone lines.
The construction of this project was funded under the State Local Bridge Program. Cardinal also prepared the application for funding under the Local Bridge Program.
