Culvert Crossing Installed Without Issue!

Culvert Crossing
Culvert Crossing

Construction was recently completed on a watercourse crossing by our client in New Milford, Connecticut.  The crossing was installed as our client currently utilizes the property for passive recreation (i.e. – hunting, firewood, etc.) and did not want to have any adverse impacts to the watercourse when he crossed it.  As such, we developed a fully engineered pre-cast concrete culvert set 1 foot below the existing grade of the existing watercourse.  This will allow for the stream bottom to be recreated over time and mimic the conditions prior to development. 

Detailed calculations were performed to ensure the safe passage of a 100-year storm event.  This crossing will be utilized to potentially access 6 lots.  Nagy Brothers construction was responsible for the implementation of our design.  They were very conscientitious and performed the work with no impacts ot the wetlands or watercourses.  Please contact me if you have any questions regarding development or wetlands/watercourse crossings.
