Project completed May, 2014
Location: Madison, NH
Owner: Town of Madison, NH
Design Build Team: G. W. Brooks and French Engineering
Issue: With the waters flowing through this site feeding into the pristine Silver Lake it was imperative to control sediment leaving the site.
Solution: By following Best Management Practices for Erosion and Sediment Control we eliminated any discharge of sediments from the site.
Issue: School Buses use this route routinely and have stops on both sides of the bridge.
Solution: Due to the school bus route and its extreme disruption with a road closure, work was scheduled outside of the school season. Even with unforeseen weather delays work was completed on time with no impact to the school bus route.
Issue: The roadway narrowed in this area due to the bridge length.
Solution: When designing this was looked at and rectified by making the new bridge’s paving actually wider than the road on both approaches to provide a safe and comfortable driving experience.
