Jackson Avenue Rehabilitation

New Windsor, NY

In 2006, HVEA initially designed this 2.8 mile roadway reconstruction as a 3R project in the Town of New Windsor, NY. It included pavement reconstruction, bridge rehabilitation, shoulder widening, guiderail installation, drainage improvements, and curve realignment. HVEA also reviewed the submission of the proposed Shadowfax Run subdivision in order to finalize a suitable entrance that would satisfy sight line distances. HVEA guided the developer’s engineers to an entrance that would satisfy NYSDOT specifications.

Construction never proceeded due to funding constraints and the Town downsized the project to 2R and selected HVEA to proceed with the new design improvements. The revised design improvements were completed and the project was constructed.

Some of the project objectives included:

  • Replace the deteriorating large culvert near the Jackson Avenue & Lake Road intersection
  • Rehabilitate the structural and railing deficiencies of the large culvert south of Lake Road
  • Hydraulic & scour improvements
  • Improve the geometric horizontal and vertical alignment of identified accident locations
  • Correct cross slope and repave roadway
  • Replace non-conforming guiderail with current industry accepted guiderail
  • Upgrade signage & striping
