Identified as an area in need of drainage improvements by the Town of Greenwich Flood & Erosion Control Board, this project will perform drainage improvements to the pipe network within Tomac Avenue, Harding Road, and Forest Avenue. This area sees regular flooding on the roadways during heavy storm events. Approximately 350 linear feet of 2'x4' concrete box culverts, new junction chambers, manholes, and catch basins will be installed. Additionally, the headwall associated with the channel parallel to the train tracks will be constructed.
This project was designed by the Town of Greenwich Department of Public Works, Engineering Division, with additional drainage analysis from Rocco V. D'Andrea, inc. FGB Construction has been selected as the general contractor for this project.
Construction is expected to commence beginning the week of May 15, 2023, and is anticipated to last approximately 3 months. The majority of work will occur during normal construction hours, Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. This project will be in multiple phases. Traffic impacts are expected, including road closures. The location of traffic impacts will vary depending on the phase and work during the project.
Anticipated to begin the week of May 15, 2023, starting in the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center parking lot and then onto Harding Road. Daytime single alternating lane closures are expected. Phase 1 is predicted to take four weeks.
Upon completion of Phase 1, Phase 2 will commence on Tomac Avenue and then on Forest Avenue. During this phase partial to full daytime road closures are expected. The road will reopen at the end of each construction day.
