Fuss & O’Neill was contracted to design a 1.2-mile, ten-foot-wide, paved, multi-use trail along the Still River in Brookfield, CT.
The Still River Greenway Multi-use Trail generally follows the river, but also runs through vacant land. This allowed us to make the most of desirable landscape features and existing Town amenities. Special considerations were given to floodplain management BMPs, delineation of state and federal wetlands, Phase I/II archeological surveys, and detailed hydraulic modeling for a new, 160-foot pedestrian bridge over the Still River.
The Still River Greenway Multi-use Trail includes integrated canoe launches, enhanced river vistas, and naturalistic rest areas. We provided full-time construction inspection services, which included: record keeping in accordance with CTDOT requirements, field measurements, pay requisitions, and changes orders.
This project involved design, preparation, and full-time construction inspection, including of contract documents for a 1.5 mile trail including 160-foot span prefabricated steel truss pedestrian bridge (with 130-foot and 280-foot multi-span timber approach bridges), three timber boardwalk wetland crossings (varying from 60 feet to 100 feet in length), and two segmental concrete block retaining walls.
