Waterbury, Conn.,Transformation Continues With Mixmaster Project

The transformation of downtown Waterbury, Conn., is taking place with the rehabilitation of 10 bridges that connect Interstate 84 and Route 8. The Mixmaster, which was opened in 1968, features stacked bridges that the Connecticut Department of Transportation called “an engineering feat that addressed the area’s challenging topography.” While the Mixmaster has undergone multiple major renovations since the late 1960s, it is now being rehabilitated due to deteriorating concrete decks, corroded bearings and joints, section loss in its girders and cracking in critical, non-redundant structures. It is Walsh Construction’s task to fix the problem. Subcontractors on the project include AFC Construction, New Britain, Conn.; American Concrete Pumping, Portland, Conn.; Diamond Core Drilling, Elyria, Ohio; and Ducci Electrical Contractors, Farmington, Conn. Construction started on the Mixmaster project on June 1, 2018, with a completion date of Dec. 1, 2023.
