Spectra was selected by the City of Gloversville to provide Phase I-VI engineering services to replace the Hill Street Road Bridge over the Cayadutta Creek. The project allows access to proposed developments and is a critical link from downtown to commercial developments.
The replacement structure is an adjacent pre-stressed voided slab superstructure on reinforced concrete substructure. It has increased widths of 11’-0” travel lanes and 4’-0” shoulders. The new bridge has defined, ADA compliant pedestrian facilities on both bridge and approaches, including sidewalk access to the rail trail. The new bridge and approaches will have improved drainage and improved road alignment. This bridge links up with an adjacent trail system.
Work began with an initial project scoping, community outreach and consultation, determination of required environmental procedures, SEQRA and NEPA classifications, coordination with local and regional officials, state and federal agencies.
Spectra provided, initial preliminary plans and design reports detailing all findings. The contract included obtaining design approval, ROW acquisition assistance, final design plans and specifications. Letting and award of the contract were also included in this phase of the contract. Spectra also provided construction administration and inspection services.
This was a locally-administered federal aid project with funding from local, state, and federal sources.
