Town of Cromwell

Willowbrook Road

Cromwell, CT

This roadway design project reconstructed a 1,800-foot section of Willowbrook Road, with improvements to vehicular and pedestrian safety along the corridor.

Benesch provided preliminary and final reconstruction design engineering, which included geometric improvements and roadway widening as well as new sidewalks running the length of the improvement. The project also replaced a 24-inch cross culvert under the roadway along with additional drainage enhancements.

Benesch also assisted the Town of Cromwell and Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) with all required permit applications, in addition to providing bidding and construction phase services. Benesch also worked directly with the Town to complete and submit a Letter of Map Revision (LMOR) for the project to FEMA—a critical path item which was instrumental in moving the project forward.
