Arborio Construction Rehabs Bridge Damaged By Hurricane Ida in Conn.

Hurricane Ida, which dropped more than 6 in. of rain in many parts of Connecticut in early September 2021, caused massive flooding, highway closures and water rescues. It also damaged roadways and a bridge on Route 9 Southbound in Cromwell, which is currently being rehabilitated. Arborio Construction of Cromwell, Conn., is the contractor. An Emergency Declaration project was signed by Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner Joseph Giulietti on Sept. 7 in order to stabilize and repair an existing 84-in. asphalt-coated corrugated metal (ACCM) pipe that was found to be structurally compromised following the storm event. The finalized scope of this project includes the full replacement of the existing 260 linear ft. of the 84-in. ACCM pipe by jacking a new 84-in. reinforced concrete pipe (RCP). New headwalls and compaction grouting also will be installed. Work began on the project in September and is on track for completion by May 1, according to CTDOT.
