Route 16 Roadway Reconstruction
HEB is currently working with the City of Berlin for the $6 million Route 16 Roadway Reconstruction Project in Berlin, NH. The project includes a 2.5 mile stretch from St. Anne’s Church to White Mountains Community College which required detailed Existing-Features analysis in order for the City and HEB to understand the direction the project would need to go to best meet the needs of the community. This analysis included survey, video analysis of drainage systems, and ground penetrating radar. The project includes roadway reconstruction design, sidewalk improvements, on-street parking improvements, and traffic calming measures while providing an appealing streetscape along the Route 16 corridor through the City. HEB worked closely with project abutters and stakeholders during planning and design to develop a feedback loop so all concerns were considered and and planned for accordingly. In addition, it was critical that HEB understand the financial impacts of the project as the City obtained bond funding for the project prior to bidding.
HEB completed the development of Construction Documents in February 2016 and bidding was completed in April 2016. Sargent Construction was the low bidder and construction began in July 2016. Construction is currently underway with an anticipated completion in late 2017.
