Welfare Road Culvert Replacement over East Branch Croton River

Southeast, NY

A Bridge NY Funded project, HVEA provided the preliminary and final design services for the replacement of the Welfare Road Culvert. This replacement project followed the procedures for locally administered federal aid projects and had an accelerated schedule requiring design and ROW acquisition to be completed within 18 months in order to meet the Bridge NY timing requirements.

This project includes the removal of a 5′ diameter failing corrugated metal pipe with a box culvert with increased hydraulic capacity. The road will be widened minimally and the culvert extended to provide an improved shoulder. In addition, bridge rail and guide rail will be upgraded to current safety standards.

This project includes:

  • Bridge NY Funded project
  • NYCDEP watershed
  • Hydraulic concerns
  • Accelerated design and construction schedule
