Work Included full depth reconstruction of roughly 1850 LF of paved roadway, including 3 intersections, 12 inch water main replacement, temporary water service installation, 8” sewer main replacement, storm drain installation and construction of raised speed tables.
There were challenging work conditions as the construction project ran right through the heart of the Bowdoin College Campus. Pedestrian access needed to be maintained to allow summer activity to reach their destinations. Also, Harry C. Crooker and Sons, Inc. had to work closely with the Maine State Music Theatre to make sure their shows would be able to unload their equipment, have room for customers to park and would flow smoothly. Crews worked six and seven day weeks to ensure the majority of the work was completed for the students returning for the fall semester.
