Road Design and Bridge Reconstruction

Our road and bridge reconstruction projects have included parking lot construction, complete road rehabilitation, bridges and large diameter culvert replacements. Many of the road and bridge reconstruction projects require the relocation of utilities and coordination with various agencies and residents of the community.

Town of Gaines East Bacon Road Bridge Replacement

Chatfield Engineers, P.C. evaluated several alternatives for replacement of the storm damaged East Bacon Road Bridge, including:

Corrugated Metal Arch Pipe

  • A Steel Bridge Deck with New Concrete Abutments
  • A Pre-cast Concrete Bridge Culvert

The 12 feet wide x 38.5 feet long pre-cast concrete bridge culvert was selected due to lower installation costs, ease of construction, long term durability, and the low lifecycle costs.

Chatfield Engineers, P.C. prepared the Plans and Specifications for replacement of the bridge and relocation of utilities, and provided Construction Phase Services, and Inspection Services.

This project was completed in a timely manner and received funding through the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) as part of an emergency appropriation of funds.

Town of Shelby Bates Road Reconstruction

The Town of Shelby Bates Road Reconstruction Project consisted of the reconstruction of approximately 1,700 linear feet of roadway along Bates Road from NYS Route 31A to approximately 700 linear feet north of the entrance to the Western New York Ethanol Facility. In addition approximately 500 linear feet of roadway was constructed into the Medina Business park.

The roadway improvements included adding an additional turning lane, increasing the turning radius and widening the shoulder at the intersection of NYS Route 31A and Bates Road; and relocating a meter-vault, and water main at the intersection.

Bates Road was raised approximately 2-feet at the intersection of NYS Route 31A to improve site distance.

Village of Albion Municipal Parking Lot

Chatfield Engineers, P.C. provided the Design and Construction Phase Services for a 225-space parking lot for the Albion Industrial Center.

This Project required close coordination between several businesses; the Orleans County Industrial Development Agency; Conrail Corporation; Keeler Construction Company, and the Village of Albion Department of Public Works, who installed portions of the Project.

In addition, Chatfield Engineers, P.C. provided Construction Phase assistance, including surveying and layout of the parking lot.

Village of Caledonia Crescent Parkway

The Village of Caledonia Crescent Parkway and Grand Avenue Road Reconstruction Project was a “Self Help” Project constructed by the Village of Caledonia Department of Public Works.

Chatfield Engineers, P.C. provided the Design and Construction Phase Services relating to the complete box out of Crescent Parkway and Grand Avenue, coordinated a Bid Package for the granite curb placement, and oversaw the construction of the entire Project, including replacement of a deteriorated water main and dilapidated drainage system.

This Project required close coordination with the Village of Caledonia, several Utility companies, and the residents impacted by the Project.

The Crescent Parkway/Grand Avenue Reconstruction Project was a recipient of the Monroe County/Genesee Valley American Public Works Award for “2001 Project of the Year Award” in the Transportation Category.

Village of Silver Springs Bigelow Avenue Intersection Improvement

The Village of Silver Springs initiated the extension of Bigelow Avenue to allow direct access for tractor trailers to NYS Route 19A. The extension reduced tractor trailer traffic on Village streets and improves access to the Morton Salt Factory.

Chatfield Engineers, P.C. provided the Design and Construction Phase Services for the extension of Bigelow Avenue, prepared the Bid Package, and oversaw the construction of the entire Project, including installation of a drainage system to accommodate the necessary improvements.

This Project required close coordination with the Village of Silver Springs, Utility companies, Morton Salt Company, NYS Department of Transportation, and the residents impacted by the Project.

Village of Victor School Street Reconstruction

The School Street/Rawson Road area experienced a significant amount of truck and vehicular traffic. It was in desperate need of reconstruction due to the narrow roadway, poor soil conditions, flooding, and the significant number of accidents which have occurred over the years in this area.

Chatfield Engineers, P.C. provided Design and Construction Phase Engineering Services for:

  • Reconstruction of 1,500 LF of Roadway
  • Reconfiguration of Intersection Layout
  • 1,640 LF of New Storm Sewer
  • 1,600 LF of Water Main Replacement
  • 1,400 LF of Sanitary Sewer Replacement

This project required close coordination with:

  • The Village of Victor Department of Public Works
  • Several underground Utility Companies
  • Several Businesses
  • Concerned Residents
  • A Child Daycare Center

This project was successfully completed through close coordination and communication between the involved parties.

The reconfigured intersection of School Street and Rawson Road provides a safe flow of traffic, and has minimized the occurrence of accidents in the project vicinity.
