Project Description

The Old Greenwich Storm Drain Improvements project is a culmination of approximately 10 years of planning, analysis, and design to alleviate flooding and restrictions to emergency services in and around the Old Greenwich downtown area.  The project involves the installation of storm drain structures and pipes on Park Avenue, portions of Sound Beach Avenue, Arcadia Road, Lockwood Avenue, Highview Avenue, in the vicinity of the Old Greenwich School and on school property.  In addition to drainage pipe installation, various catch basins and manholes will be installed, curbing and sidewalk will be replaced in several locations, Park Avenue will be entirely repaved, portions of Sound Beach Avenue, Arcadia Road, Lockwood Avenue and Highview Avenue will be repaved and new pavement markings will be applied. 

The Contractor, Grasso Companies, LLC, Norwalk, CT, will be working between 7am – 6pm, Monday – Friday, beginning on Thursday, June 22, 2017 and will start construction on the school property installing pipe working toward Sound Beach Avenue.  The proposed construction is anticipated to last approximately 12 months, with pipe installation between Summer 2017 and Spring 2018 and final restoration occurring in Spring/Summer 2018.  All dates are dependent on the weather and any unforeseen complications.
