Cardinal Engineering Associates - 55 years of excellence

This project consisted of the replacement of the existing Godfrey Road West Bridge over the West Branch of the Saugatuck River with a new triple cell 8’x6’ precast concrete box culvert. The construction of this project will be funded under the State Local Bridge Program. The bridge was designed in accordance with Connecticut Department of Transportation design standards.

The existing bridge has a deteriorated substructure, is hydraulically inadequate, and is located within a FEMA floodway. The replacement bridge is designed to pass the 100 year storm without overtopping and meet FEMA criteria. A low flow channel was provided for fish passage and boulders 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, Weston Planning and Zoning Commission. Cardinal prepared the application for funding under the Local Bridge Program.

The project required coordination with utility companies for the relocation of an existing gas main and overhead power and telephone lines. Cardinal is currently providing contract administration and inspection for this project.
