In 2010 Cardinal Engineering completed the design of streetscape improvements and reconstruction of approximately 1,000 linear feet of Prospect Street, a major collector road located on the Yale University campus in downtown New Haven. This project was in conjunction with the implementation of the Yale Development Authority plan for beautification of streets adjacent to the Yale campus. This project required close coordination with the City of New Haven and representatives of Yale University.
The project included total roadway reconstruction, realignment of the Edwards Street intersection and installation of decorative street lighting, a Blue Light system to improve pedestrian safety, new granite curbing, concrete sidewalks, and improved crosswalks. The project also included evaluation of existing street trees and a plan for the removal of unhealthy or unsafe trees and planting of new trees more appropriate for roadside installation.
Overhead power lines were eliminated and underground power and telecommunications conduits were installed. Parking meters were replaced with parking kiosks.
Cardinal Engineering provided all engineering services and worked closely with the Landscape Architecture firm of Towers Golde on this project.client contact information
