Project Description

Fuller Road and Washington Avenue Intersection Project

City of Albany, Albany County, New York

This $14.5 million Locally Administered Federal Aid project involved preliminary and final design for reconstruction of the intersection of Fuller Road (CR 156) and Washington Avenue (NY Route 910D). This at-grade intersection experienced significant vehicular delay and had a high accident rate. Creighton Manning, as prime consultant, was responsible for the preparation of the Design Approval Document/Environmental Assessment, all preliminary and final roadway reconstruction and bridge design plans, construction inspection services, and survey. The project objectives were to decrease traffic congestion, improve pedestrian and bicycle access through the intersection, enhance safety, and address the deteriorating pavement condition. This included the stormwater management design in accordance with the 2010 NYS DEC Stormwater Manual. The project includes reconstruction of Washington Avenue on a new alignment with a bridge consisting of two 95 ft long single span structures over a two-lane roundabout on Fuller Road.

The intersection reconstruction project won the American Council of Engineering Companies of New York (ACEC-NY) 2015 Engineering Excellence Diamond Award, its highest honor in the transportation category.
