Waring Road Reconstruction

‹ Portfolio

Situated amidst several neighborhoods, Waring Road had been plagued by severely deteriorated pavement and required several upgrades to provide improved conditions for drivers and pedestrians alike.

Enhancements started with reconstructing the entire mile length of the road. This involved excavating the existing road and subbase, followed by installing a new gravel foundation with asphalt laid on top.

Our primary objective during the planning and design process was to promote safe driving and walking experiences for the community. This led to replaced sidewalks and driveway aprons, realigned intersection side streets to 90 degrees for improved sight distance, and new curb bump-outs. We also established distinct, widened bike lanes and marked them with vibrant, fresh striping, installed ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps and adequate on-street parking facilities, thereby enhancing accessibility.

Additionally, our team provided stormwater upgrades to meet the New York State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) program requirements. This involved the installation of all-new drainage structures, including receiving basins and laterals, as well as the construction of four bioretention landscaped areas. These upgrades improve water quality and help remove harmful stormwater runoff, benefiting both the environment and the community.

Whether used for work or leisure, Waring Road is not only a safe and pleasant corridor for all to experience, but also an example of environmentally responsible transportation infrastructure.
