A project that involves completing the infrastructure for a 29-lot subdivision located in the Town of Burnt Hills. This $1.0 Million Dollar project involves installing an offsite waterline down to the entrance of the subdivision, then installing it into the site for all 29 services. The crew was also responsible for clearing, grading, installing the stormwater drainage, stormwater management pond, installing the subbase and paving.
A project that involved moving almost 70,000 CY of material from cuts to fills over a 17 Mile stretch of the new bike trail. The trail stretches from the Rensselaer-Columbia county line to the Town of Nassau and continues to the City of Rensselear. The trail weaves through Nassau, Schodack, East Greenbush with the end in the City of Rensselaer. This $14 Million Dollar project involved pipe, 4 bridges, box culvert, subbase and paving of the entire stretch. The AHET Trail is an important part of the Empire State Trail, providing a key link between the Capital Region and the Mid-Hudson Valley. The Empire State Trail, which is now complete, is a 750-mile biking and walking trail from New York City to Canada and from Albany to Buffalo.
A project that involves installing over 13,000 LF of 30” ductile iron pipe which began in the Stockade area of Schenectady and continued for over 2 miles along the bike path. The project began on North Ferry Street and ended up at Anthony Street. The crew successfully crossed 4 major roads while installing the 30” main, they were Nott, Peek, Seneca & Maxon Rd. Construction of the $6.5 million dollar project began in the fall of 2019 and is almost complete. This crew has done a great job under difficult conditions fitting the pipe in areas that are currently occupied with many other utilities.
A project that involves 2 separate jobs that we have handled as one large project. The first section is from Frankfort to Ilion and was bid last year for $4.4 Million Dollars. We started this project last fall and worked late into the winter in order the get the embankments complete on either side of the bridge. This year we worked on installing more embankment, pipe extensions, installing subbase & paving. The next section is from Ilion to Mohawk, this project was bid in June of this year for $6.3 Million Dollars. Once we were notified that we were low bidder the owner asked us if we could take the completion date of June 31, 2021 and reduce it by 6 months with a new completion date of December 31, 2020. We looked at it and told the owner we could get it done by then, which required us to work 6 days a week – 12 Hours a day. This project is like the first section of trail with an embankment, pipe extensions, one bridge, subbase, and paving. We anticipate that all the work on both projects are substantially complete by December 31, 2020 and will be the final sections of the Empire State Trail System. The crews have been working hard and have been able to get both paved.
