Project Description

US Route 4 Reconstruction

Town of North Greenbush, Rensselaer County, New York

The project included full-depth reconstruction, utility relocation, stormwater management and sidewalks. Inspection staff included a Chief Engineer and a Level II inspector who monitored work zone traffic control, provided daily quantity measurements, calculations, and report writing using APPIA software. Inspection work was performed in accordance with NYSDOT Standard Specifications, M.U.R.K., and the MUTCD.  Design challenges included high vehicle approach speeds, adjacent commercial driveways, the need to minimize right-of-way impacts and accounting for steep grades within the intersection and on the approaches. Creighton Manning redesigned the previous y-intersection into a T-intersection to improve the flow of traffic and pedestrian safety.
