The Maine Department of Transportation contracted Kleinfelder for the preliminary design, final design, and construction administration for the replacement of aging and deteriorated twin concrete box culverts. During the preliminary design, Kleinfelder carefully compared various design alternatives that considered the many challenges at this site. Construction of the replacement structure was completed in the spring of 2012.
The Kleinfelder team successfully collaborated with all key stakeholders to determine and implement a solution that satisfied all interests. The result was a cost-effective concrete structure requiring minimal maintenance while providing seamless fish passage for alewives and other important aquatic species.
